I trying to find out why the "safely remove hardware" icon that appears
in the system try when you plug in a USB device doesn't. I connect a
USB memory stick and everything works fine, except the the icon in
the system tray doesn't appear. To stop it I created an icon with a
rundll32 script, but still I would like to know why the icon doesn't appear

I have run spybot S&DTX and killed almost all the startups, but still I can't
get it to appear (I once had this problem with another ME machine, but
fussing with the startups I got it to run again, no such luck with this one).

I know most people want to get rid of it, I would like to know why it doesn't
appear or what process controls it. Maybe something is missing?

Read somewhere that a system restore may fix this, but try this out first.

See if you can reinstall the drivers for the memory stick (if any).
