    A minute ago, I reemove my usb device through " safely remove hardware' but
    now I am unable to see the icon in the system tray. When I plug in my
    handphone device, you can hear the sound that seems to indicate that it has
    detected a new hardware but it does not show the dialogue for the devuce.
    Also in 'my computer' it also does not show the device. How can I get it back
    the "safely remove hardware icon' in the system tray? thanks
