    Creator's update annoyance

    after installing creators update the "safely remove hardware and eject media" icon is permanently displayed on my taskbar. when i click on it i see eject usb root hub 3.0. when i click eject it goes away until a restart then it's back. i have also removed all usb devices connected to my computer just to confirm it's not displaying this message for one of my devices. i did google search this and it seems alot of people are having issues with their usb devices not working due to some problem with the usb root hub. i found alot of solutions for devices not working but i'm not having this problem. all of my devices work. my issue is this unwanted icon on the taskbar and the os telling me to eject a usb device that i do not have plugged in. any ideas how to resolve this?

    Misterdean, welcome - you don't give any specs for your system, but many USB oddities are fixed by installing the correct chipset drivers for your PCs motherboard - see the sticky threads at the top of the page here:
