That "Safely Remove Hardware" is for PCMCIA and USB devices. Even though these devices can be hot swapped, some may cause problems when removed from the ports while Windows is running. For those devices, you'll need to open the "Safely Remove Hardware" box to stop them from there before removing (disconnecting) them from the ports. You don't actually remove the driver, you only stop the device from running. And of course, when it's stopped, it can't be used.
