|Did you try using the "safely remove" icon in the notication area?|
Do you have your system setup to view all the icons in the notification area? If not, try this:
- right click an empty area on the taskbar, and then click Properties.
- under Notification area, click Customize.
- check the box for "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar", then click OK.
And if you haven't already done so, I suggest enabling the Quick Launch toolbar as well.
