Good Day,

Not sure where this "new" icon came from. All it says is, "safely remove USB mass storage device." When I click on it nothing happens for either right or left click. I ran a virus scan, but nothing showed then I went into the startup file, but it wasn't listed. (My OS is Window's XP)

I then ran a "Startup Inspector" and again it wasn't listed. Then I remember _command prompt_ and running msconfig to see startup menu

Unfortunately, all I get is a message stating that, "msconfig is not recognized as an internal or external command. (I could have sworn this worked before.)

So now I don't know if the two are related, but either way I'm concerned.

Anyone have any suggestions...

TIA

That is a normal function in windows xp. You must have a USB flash drive or some other sort of USB device that is the utility that windows has so you can disable the device before you unplug it from the system.
