phantom 'Local Disk Q' suddenly appeared

i suddenly have 'Local Disk Q' on my drive list in windows explorer, which of course i cannot access. disk management only shows volume c and d and the dvd drive, as it should.

what might cause that and how do i eliminate it?

That was a good question, So I created a Q drive and tried to install office and this is what I got. You cannot have a Q drive because office wants it.
