Strange Removable F: Disk Icon

This question is not answered

I own a 3 years old Dimension E521 (OS Vista) using only 2 drives: C and D.  Strangely yesterday an icon appeared on the Quick Launch which when I hoover over it read "Safely Remove Hardware."  This icon also appears on the Computer page as Removable Disk (F:).  I deleted the icons on the Computer page and  Quick Launch, however when I booted up my computer today, they were back.  I used my Epson printer yesterday for the first time in months and thought perhaps that had something to do with the icons.  However, I do not remember ever seeing these icons when I used the printer in the past.

Does anyone have any ideas about these icons?

  • Please disregard the previous post.  I have discovered the icon is from the Epson Printer.

    Thank you.
