Partition problem

Hello lads!
I have a bizarre problem with a partition, which appeared out of nowhere. I'll attach some print screens to see what can be done. My problem is that i can't delete it, or even access it. Some guy on another forum said that it could be because of the Office 2010, i doubt it.
It doesn't appear on disk management but it does on shares. So, how can I remove it?

Yes, its because of the Office 2010 Click-to-Run virtualisation tech. You can get rid of it, see these threads.

Thanks Bill, I couldn't remember, we all fooled around with it a while back, kind of slow if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the responses. Seems like the Office generated that Q:\ even if I installed the trial version.

It did, it was added by the trial version, it's "not really" there if you know what I'm trying to say, it's virtual.
