SATA Hard drives

Have 2 sata hard drive (not in raid) installed.
Have done a clean install of xp and installed revalent drivers when told to do so.
The problem is that these drives now show up in task bar as plug and play drives (do not remember these doing this before). How can I remove the icon from the task bar to prevent my children accidentlly removing the drives.

set up SATA drives to be 'hot swap' - ie you can remove them while the pc is powered up. You can set them up for quick removal under the 'Properties / Policies' - maybe worth checking there?
