USB Icon always visible on Taskbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Even before any USB devices are plugged in I get a USB icon on my taskbar, which to get rid of I have to click on and tell it to "Safely Remove Hardware".


    This started happening after I bought a USB drive (Lexar) with some preinstalled stuff on which I quickly reformatted. But I cannot get rid of this USB icon. It appears right after booting and showing the desktop (without any USB devices plugged in).


    Is there perhaps a place in the registry I should be looking?
