Windows 7: Safely Remove H/ware disappeared

19 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1
Safely Remove H/ware disappeared

The 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon (which I always use before removing flash drives, ext. hdd) has
disappeared from the systems tray.
The only change made to computer was that it was connected to a wifi internet.
Any ideas of where to find this and restore it to the systems tray?

Yes I checked the list shown when 'customise' is selected but it has gone from there as well.

"Safely Remove HDW" disappeared in Windows 7!?!?!
FYI to all, here's a site to re-enable this on Windows 7 (32 & 64 alike;) I was a little miffed when they got rid of that nice precaution. I've been testing this and trying out different ways to attempt to (for lack of a better word) corrupt the software as to gauge it's prowess. In the...
