    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    USBDeview by Nir Sofer (Nirsoft) works for me.

    Some times it can be a program you think you've closed but in fact still has processes running. Check in task manager to see if the said program is still running. I have a utility that does this and and until I kill the process it won't allow me to "safely" eject the USB

    90% of the time it is the case. I reboot, faster than checking to find the culprit.
