Missing a registry place

Hallo!
I was trying to hide a local disc (Q, a virtual disc that Office 2010 has created.
I found the answer, but it told me to go to:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
I went to policies, but there where no "explorer"
I tried to google, but I only found more tweaks that where made in this location.

Someone knowing why it isn“t there?
Help!

Thanks

Are you sure you navigated to the correct, complete path?

Make sure you chose the whole path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

I looked on another computer, with the same os (I bought a license for three pc), and it“s the same thing there, no explorer in policies...
Can it be hided? Or could this edition of 7 be without it?
