Windows 7: Computer keeps loading up a device that doesn't exist

Computer keeps loading up a device that doesn't exist

My computer keeps loading up autoplay saying that E:\ is connected even though I have nothing plugged in. When I click on "Open Folder to view files" it pops up with an error message saying "E:\ refers to a location that is unavailable...". It does this even when I turn off the wifi, so I don't see how it could even be a network device. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Is it in someway connected to Corel? Just check this thread CorelDrw.dll error code 998

More details since when you started getting this drive E and what you did before that may perhaps help others to decipher on what could have happened and provide a solution. ( I do not have any Corel programs and hence least qualified except raising the above query. )

Not a corel problem since I don't have any of that on my computer. I just ran a system restore and it seemed to take care of it so far.
