Windows 10: Explorer scanning for "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media"

    Explorer scanning for "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media"

    When I boot up my system it will normally scan once and that's it. A couple weeks ago I started getting a system sound when I logged into a game I play Black Desert Online and the sound would repeat itself exactly every 2 minutes. I tried a reboot and it would disappear and come back a couple days later. After Tuesday's patch I can't get it to stop. To find the cause of the system sound I used Process Monitor by Sysinternals and set the filter path to .wav and while in the game when I got the system sound ProcMon advised it was as stated in the thread title and exactly every 2 minutes.

    If I disengage the mouse in game I wont get the sound but as soon as I go back to combat mode it starts again. I have another MMO installed Elder Scrolls Online and it doesn't do it in that game. I have rebuilt the version file with no change, I've uninstalled and removed all USB connection, with only a mouse and keyboard connected at this stage. I did change out the mouse and changed USB ports with no success.

    Any advice to help me resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    TIA Rocky
    PS I did reinstall drivers for video, sound, mouse and keyboard and ran AVG Pro anti virus and Malwarebytes Pro with no threats.

Title says it all. Even without any flash drives connected to my PC, it still displays this. Didn't happen when I was back in Windows 7.
