    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.

    :)

  2. Windows Anniversary Update an USB ejection

    The "safely remove hardware and eject media" icon is still in the taskbar after the update. However, it no longer does what it is supposed to. Istead, you click on it and it takes you to the devices and printers window, which is kind of useless. Is there
    a way of ejecting devices safely under the new update, without having to go to File Explorer/This PC?

    Safe to remove hardware message no longer shows in Windows 10 Pro x64

    need registry key to enable "safe to remove hardware" message in Windows 10. This message no longer appears after "Safely remove hardware and eject media" is selected from the notification area's icon. The system is working properly but is simply not displaying
    the "safe to remove message" which it previously did.
