Broadband/Safely Remove Hardware

  Jocat 13:16 11 Mar 2004

Hi There,

I have just had broadband installed. The modem which came when I ordered is USB, the connection all works fine, but down in the right hand corner by the clock I now have an icon which tells me I can safely remove hardware, when I click on this it tells me my USB modem is safe to remove. I have come accroos this before with my pen drive and it always goes away once the pen drive is removed, however I dont wish to remove my modem. Is there any way of getting this icon to go away.

Many thanks in advance

You can hide this activity in XP. Right click on the arrow bottomw right near clock, then select customise or soemthing like that. You can then basically never show this icon again etc. All from memory so I hope this helps.
