1. You'll have to prevent your friends from using your computer. Create a BIOS password, don't share it with anyone, then no-one apart from you will be able to boot the system.

2. USB drive removal is not always quick and easy. Writing to a USB drive CAN take longer than you think. When you click on the Safe Removal icon, if you get a message saying it is still working then you have to wait and try again in a few minutes. That is what the message is telling you.

If you insist on removing the drive despite the warning, it may very well NOT WORK the next time you plug it in!
