Any help would be appreciated.

I have already changed Windows Explorer ( safely remove hardware ) ( Stobject.dll ) but would like to change the icon that tells you it's safe to remove.
This one ?

hi arc, No that's not the one.

The one I am looking for is the one that shows up when you eject the usb.

It looks exactly the same as the Windows Explorer one.
It's a little grey usb plug with a green circle and a tick inside it.

No that's not the one.

That is the one for "SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE AND EJECT MEDIA" I have already changed that one.

The one I want to change now is "THE USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE CAN NOW BE SAFELY REMOVED FROM THE COMPUTER" It looks exactly the same as the remove hardware one but must be in a different location.

If you click on "CUSTOMIZE" in the system tray you will see it labelled as " Windows host process (Rundll32)


EDIT:- here is a picture of the icon I want to change.
