Safety remove USB.

I remembered a lot of hatred (exaggerating) when I saw this post from Dhanelle on facebook. Lol!
I just realized that I've been living with this scenario more than half of my life. Yes, I do safety remove everytime I finish working on a USB or an external hard drive because I pretty much have gotten used to it but I know for I fact that I hated doing so since most of the time, I am not successful.

1. I know I can't remove the USB device while I am transferring any file or when I know I am still doing anything that concerns the USB. 
2. The green light on the USB usually never goes off so I don't really know when to unplug.
3. I know Im done with my task, waits for a couple of minutes and this error message appears:

Windows can't stop your 'Generic Volume' device because a program is still using it. Close any programs that might be using the device, and then try again later.


This is what really pisses me off in my everyday life using a computer.

Solution I found from my best friend google:

1. Your anti-virus is peeping through your external drive so you have to disable it in the meantime if you really can't stand it.
2. Windows indexing. Right-click on the drive, select Properties, uncheck box with Allow indexing.
