Are you sure it's not your printer/scanner automatically going off-line? (Mine has that feature so you don't need to turn it off manually)

OK, so it is a mobile phone. Is this a smart phone(iphon,android,win7 ect...)

The reason I ask is because I am wondering if it has to do with a setting or program on the phone.When you unplug it it still thinks its connected or something.

Can you tell me , does it still happen if the phone is OFF and you connect it.

If it does, try to find something else to plug in with use (camera,usb drive, ect..)
To see if its something with the computer or not.

If it stil does this with any usb device than it is a problem in the Device manager settings

Hello!
I have XP3. When I plug in a USB or camera or turn my printer on; there is a icon in my tray that tells me they are connected.You should right click on that icon and choose Safely Remove Hardware. If you don't do that, you can damage the device.A reboot will do the same thing but that's not recommended.
Always choose (Safely Remove Hardware) The icon will go away after you receive a message and then it's safe to remove the device.:thumbup2:

OK, sounds good

I will have to keep this in mind as I have heard of others that had similar problems

So I'm sure this post can be locked now as the problem is solved.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in unpredictable results.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
