I get it aswell it's been there for months, I just ignore it as it has never caused me any problems.

Go to System Properties and then into Hardware and Device Manager, can be accessed through control panel, find the hardware that is appearing in the Safely Remove Hardware icon and double click it to bring up its properties and then click the Policies tab. And click the option 'Optimize for quick removal'
That should get rid of the icon, you may need to reboot before this takes effect though.
