    I have Windows 7 Ultimate edition 64Bit running on an ASUS Laptop. Recently, whenever I click on the Eject USB button in the system tray, it just flashes. No menu item appears. If I open My Computer, right click on a flash drive, and choose eject, then it ejects file. However, context menu for my MyBook drives does not have an eject item, so the only way I can remove those safely if I shutdown the machine.

    I think this started happened after a recent windows update, but I can't be sure. Has anyone else had the same experience, and more importantly, found a solution?

    Thanx

    I tried all the steps on that page, but it hasn't made any difference. I don't think it's a driver problem. The USB devices all work fine. It's just that windows has stopped popping up the menu to allow me to remove them.

    Interestingly, Windows wouldn't allow me to rename the INFCACHE.1 file (said I need permission from myself), but would allow me to delete it.
