Anyone know where or why I have managed to obtain an icon telling me (when I point at it) that it can "Remove hardware safely"? It has no menu with it and I'm scared to click on it in case I initiate something. The only hardware I installed recently was a broadband modem, and I don't remember seeing it at the time.

That should have read "Safely Remove Hardware"

clicking on it will bring up a list of connected items , for instance my USB Pocket drive will show up on my machine , when the list is up you can then highlight the device you want to remove.

Not sure what other types of connected device show up , but presumably USB , Firewire devices .

If the modem is USB, that's what it is referring to. If you right click on the taskbar, choose Properties, Customise, you can choose to hide it.
