My USB device is plugged into my PC but is NOT in use so why do I keep seeing a window which says 'This device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows which might be using the device and then try again' every time I try to unplug the device ?

How do I remove the USB safely if I keep seeing this ?

You may have to power off the PC, then unplug to safely remove.
