everytime i start my computer up, the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon shows in the toolbar and says i have "J" "I" "H" and "G" Generic drives.
i never even connect anything while booting up, so im assuming its a virtual drive.
how do i delete it?

i'm gonna disagree with some of this here....if the drive letters are showing up WITHOUT a corresponding device (be that a virtual cd drive created by you're burning software or any of the other virtual drive softwares that make virtual HD's)...then something isn't good...."extra" drives SHOULD only be showing up when there is a device to occupy that drive mapping...I.E. if you don't have a media reader (which...morpheus says he does so that's where that letter is comming from) or USB drive or anything like that hooked up...the drive shouldn't be tehre..and any time you try to access it it should fail...if there are too many drive letters occupied by phantom devices...when you DO actually plug in a device....it won't be able to attach itself to a drive letter and therefore won't work.....any time there's a drive letter showing up in my computer...there HAS to be a device (virtual or physical) connected...otherwise something's wrong
these drives are handy
if you have any saved data on a memory stick you can install it that way
just put memory stick in click my computer and it should show up on one of the drives then you click on that particular drive and install or save whatever you want to memory stick
safely remove hardware helps you take your memory stick out without causing or erasing anything you save or have saved on memory stick
or the drives can used for storage device plug ins
cant see why you would want to delete those drives
you might even cause severe damage to your computer removing system drives
causing all kinds of blue screen of death and stop errors
so trying to customize your computer that way may not be such a good idea
if its space your after only install what you need from a program
alot of programs have so much extras that no one really needs
