How can I get rid 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon from the system tray


Guys, I need some help. I can't seem to get rid of the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray. I have disconnected the cable modem and printer when prompted, and after I reboot, the icon re-appears. Any suggestions that you might have would greatly be appreciated.
