Right click on the taskbar and click ‘Properties’
Under the ‘Taskbar’ tab, click the ‘Customize’ button that appears near the bottom of the window
Locate ‘Safely Remove Hardware’ and choose ‘Always Hide’

After the drivers are installed it needs to be rebooted usually because the necessary files need to start with windows. The only way I know is to manually close the notification selecting the I will reboot later option. If there is a way I would recommend to just go ahead and do it. Maybe delay the reboot but it may not work right if you don't.

There is USB units that are showing that message even when unit was detected by windows and are working properly without reboot. There is a way to cancel that kind of warning?

It may have an option if you right click on it and see if there is an option to quit telling you.
