HELP ME !!! I can't make this remove hardware go away!!

I installed my new printer. It is a USB port, I did the install from the cd and everything works, but, down in the bottom right tray, there is a little icon that keeps showing to safely remove hardware. How do I make that go away?? The only printer connection that I have is not the USB, but the weird little port connection, and this printer doesn't have that. Am I going to have to deal with this all the time now?

Yes, it's down by the clock where it shows the programs that are open.
No, you can't delete it or close it, it will only give you the thumbs up to safely unplug the hardware.

Try this:

START
SETTINGS
CONTROL PANEL
TASKBAR AND START MENU
HIDE INACTIVE ICONS
CUSTOMIZE

find the item in the list, click on it and choose the ALWAYS HIDE option.

Then OK yourself out of there.
