Windows 7: Blank/empty drive in Computer (screenshot)

Blank/empty drive in Computer (screenshot)

I picked up an HP 2000 at Office Depot ($350, ftw) for a friend yesterday and have spent last night and this morning getting it set up (personalized and whatnot). Anyway, I had to remove the HP_TOOLS partition (don't worry, I backed up all the data on it into the C drive) in order to add in a Personal_Data partition. But now the computer folder is showing an unexpected guest... his name is Q. Can anyone explain why Q is there?




EDIT: Here is the Disc Management, so you can see that there is, indeed, no Q drive.

Hello Kevin,

It's nothing to worry about. It's part of Office 2010 "Click to run" technology. Do you have a beta version of Office 2010 installed?

The laptop came with Office 2010 Starter pre-installed. Thanks for letting me know what it is.
