Hi - I know this is an older thread, yet this entire forum has been SUCH a great help in my conversion from a lean/mean XP
to a Windows 7 that's getting closer each day because of all the tips/tweaks here - so Thank You very much!
Just wanted to add, for anyone else having these problems --
in addition to the initial procedures (I chose to set it via the Group Policy on Windows 7 Professional),
I had to go into the system tray "Customize Notifications" ,
and then select "Windows host process(Rundll32)" - Show icon and notification" ,
before the balloon would popup properly as I wanted.
Anyone that's had real data corruption due to not following the "proper-official" removal protocol,
knows how important that final visual confirmation is, to remove the paranoia.
And for any of the lucky ones who maintain .... "why, that never happens to ME!
I can remove all sorts of drives while wrestling alligators w/ my bare hands!"
[as one of my smart*ss know-it-all friends said]
..... then, I'm really really happy for you .... maybe I can take YOUR seminar some day
