I went into Customize taskbar to put "always show" Safely Remove Hardware Icon in the notification area, popped up there fine, did what I needed to do and when I removed my SD card the icon disappeared. Again went into taskbar and the icon had moved down to the past items. How do I get it to stay permanently in the notification area?

When you re-insert the card, does the icon re-appear?

Yes, the icon shows when I re-insert card. However, the icon seems to come & go. As long as it shows when I insert a card. I'm fine. The only reason for my wanting it to show all the time was a reminder for me not to pull the card out too quick. Thanks for your help.

Open Device Manager and click on the +'s. Look for yellow exclamation points or red X's and tell us what device they'rs by. I know you have a few issues going on at once

If the icon doesn't work or is having problems, you can remove the hardware by opening my computer right clicking on the drive in question and selecting the eject option.

Alan.

You don't by chance have "Hide Inactive Icons" selected on the taskbar properties do you?

Nope, don't have Hide Icon selected. That is about the only thing I do know to do. In Past Items the Safely Remove Hardware Icon was listed as Always Show and did not know WHY it was in Past Items. Right now it's showing in my notification area but it has come and gone on its own--right now it's there. The same thing has been happening with my McAfee icon--it's supposed to always show in the notification area but lately it has disappeared and then reappeared.

I opened the Device Manager per the Masochist's suggestion and there are no yellow or red marks indicating any problems. This is one of those "huh?" moments--not that big a deal. My big deal is the Event Viewer and User Profiles so I won't worry needlessly about this problem and maybe somebody will be able to figure it out.

Will keep the info about ejecting the device from my computer--was unaware of that. Thanks for the tip.

Its a long shot, but the event viewer may give some more information.

1. Click Start select run
2. Type eventvwr.exe
3. Press enter
4. Search through the groups for errors and warnings.
5. Double click on each error and or warning.
6. Locate the copy to clipboard button, (under the two arrows)
7. Let us know what you find. (paste the results)
Regards,

Alan.

I'm sure you're gonna love this. It will be apparent just how much knowledge I don't have. I have another topic "Event Viewer" which I am trying to get help. Very confused and nervous about the amount of errors/warnings there are. In Application from 7-6 to 8-14 there are 47 errors and from 7-12 to 8-14 there are 60 warnings. In System from 6-9 to 8-14 there are 302 errors and from 6-9 to 7-30 there are 60 warnings. Needless to say, didn't know that one should check the Event Viewer to see what was going on with the system. Now that I know, I am trying not to panic and praying that my system will behave until I can get all this ironed out. So, all that is to say, I am waiting on a response from whoever because I don't know exactly how to send all this information. Thank you so much for your quick response.

Thats quite a list...

There are quite a lot of problems with the system.

If you have a Windows XP CD, you can perform a system file check, http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html (start=>run=>sfc /scannow)

MsiInstaller
There are problems with windows installer, I would download and replace the application http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.
This could be malware related basically limits how many connections can be opened to slow traffic (and malware spreading) You may consider following the steps at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

W32Time

The time service can be a problem at times, a fix can be found at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/114697/fix-windows-time-service/

print
Your Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 changed and updated a lot of files.

Removable Storage Service
I believe that this is the cause of the problem in question, Are you admin of the system, it sounds like the service is preventing you from completing the task. Also, start =>run services.msc can you find Removable Storage Service?

E100B
This sounds like a problem with your wireless device. Right click my computer select properties then the hardware tab and then the device manager button. Look in the network adapters group. What is there?

Ftdisk
This could be down to removing an external device without safely removing it first.
Regards,

Alan.

Alan, downloaded windows installer per the MsiInstaller warning received in Event Viewer. The old application was in c:/i386...should I put back in there? FF downloads to my desktop so can put downloads in a special file in case have trouble with any of them. Really appreciate your help in all this.

You can double click the installer to install windows installer. Once it has been installed you can then store the install file in another location or delete it.

Alan.

RE: Removable Storage Service -- Status: Started Start Up Type: Automatic Yes, I am the admin of the system

RE: E100B--said it sounded like a problem with a wireless device and to look in the network adapters group. Don't have a wireless device that I know of. In the network adapters group: Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection

RE: Print--Your Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 changed and updated a lot of files--I wasn't aware it could do something like that. How is that possible?
