safely remove c drive (again)

Specs: Vista Ultimate SP2, E6750/3+gig
I've finally reinstalled Vista (was hoping to never have to do it, but I blame Adobe...) & I'm stuck with having the 'safely remove' icon for my SATA drives in the system tray. In the previous installation I got rid of it by using the nvata registry hack, but this time there was no nvata key. So, I created the key, set the data value etc. but the 'safely remove' option is still there. I know I could simply ignore it, but I use a lot of USB devices & it just bugs me every time I have to go to the 'safely remove' icon, so if anyone has any updated ways of removing this bugbear, I would be very appreciative.

... found this

Do do it manually in registry :
Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvata
Create a dword value named "DisableRemovable" without the quotes and set the value to 1

If you dont have the nvata key (e.g nforce 3 drivers) do the same in :
Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvatabus
Create a dword value named "DisableRemovable" without the quotes and set the value to 1

Before :

Samsungs are in Raid-0 (nvraid/nvata).
The other two is single disks (nvata).

After:

All gone , just the USB left as it should be :biggthumbsup:
If you dont have any fw(1394) or usb removables , the entire "Safely Remove HW" is also gone from systray

Hi, thanks for reply. Yes as I mentioned, I've already been through the regedit processes described with the nvata key with no success. I've just done the same with nvatabus (also had to be created) & still no joy (it's an nForce 4 chipset).
