Items showing on My Computer but do not exist

Hi there.

When I click on my computer, besides my drive letters it shows, in the Other tab, two local disks that do not exist.

How can I delete them?

Regards,

Hi
Try going into admin tools, computer management, disk management and see if you can delete the non existing drivers there

Maybe these are some sort of usb hub icons ? If so there's a setting to hide unpopulated devices under organize I believe.

Welcome to SF , kodiak.

If you know something more about computer that can help you.
I had same problems but with Floppy . I dont have floppy but I see it in my computer. Try Disk Management or restart computer and open BIOS. Maybe you can there see that devices. If you found disable it and maybe fix your problem.

If you dont know how to do it ..... I dont know anything other for this problem.
Wait for other members.

Have you connected a camera recently?

If so, you need to install the camera drivers too.

Failing that, you might want to run a virus scan.

I don't think that this is result of virus. Can you post screenshot from Disk Management ?
As sevixen said above, I think that it may be result of unsuccessful installation.
