Hi,

All of a sudden and for no reason at all that I can figure out I have an unknown drive in my computer view as shown here. I ran several virus/malware scans that came up clean. I did Microsoft's suggestion by unhidding and removing ghost hardware but it's still there.

Any ideas where to go with this?



Thanks,

It is some kind of shortcut to the run command on my start menu. Some program must have put it there. How do I get rid of it? I looked high and low in the GPS Editor with no luck. And Google searches have been fruitless.

Thanks,

I think Office can do that, I forget exactly how or why though

Could also be a mapped network drive ?


EDIT - Maybe this ?
