I got error when trying to remove my pen drive through Safely Remove Hardware in my Windows XP Professional SP2 PC. And this error also incurs when trying to remove my other two (2) external hard disk drives. Any notions as to what may be the reason for this? I posted an exact screenshot of the error I am receiving.

RUNDLL

An exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll"

If you can’t remove your USB flash drive without getting an error even when using the “Safely remove hardware” button, there is probably something wrong with the USB drivers. First, try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter.

Insert your Windows setup CD or DVD when you are prompted then continue. Wait until the process is complete. When it is complete, restart the computer. If this doesn’t work, uninstall and reinstall the USB drivers. Right-click “Computer” and select “Manage”. In “Computer Management” window, select “Device Manager” on the left pane. On the right, expand “Universal Serial Bus controllers”.

Right-click an item then select “Uninstall”. Do this on the remaining items. Just skip the items that can’t be uninstalled. When you are finished, restart the computer. Windows should reinstall the USB drivers back. Alternatively, download your motherboard’s chipset drivers from your computer manufacturer’s website.
