It`s probably a virtual drive. Have you installed any programs lately, such as PowerISO ?

you don't need to uninstall all of office - just the click-to-run (C2R) bit of it.

more information and an uninstall program here

I notice the latest issue of preinstalled bloatware generally has Office 2010 trial and Office Starter. Instead of presenting you with a bill after 60 days of creating documents and spreadsheets, you can keep using Starter which is a perfectly good free Office suite with some ads.

However if you try to remove the Click 2 Run virtual mess, it tells you you can't use Starter.

It would be good to figure out how to get around this, perhaps here and now.
