Hard Drive won't disapear from Explorer

Hi,
I have a hard disk that is split in two partitions. Both of about 115gb. This all displays fine in windows explorer. I also have and external hard drive of 120 gb whic i use for some backups, this also dispalys fine. However for some reason my computer also displays another drive which is just called Q:/ . It reads as having no space and is inaccesable when i click on it. Is there any way of getting rid of this.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum,

That Q drive is from Office 2010 click to run, Have a look at this.

Can I hide or delete the Q drive?

You're welcome,

You're not the first to wonder where it came from.
