Default A mystery drive

I have something called a "Q" drive on my Windows 7 laptop which is inaccessible and noone seems to know what it is. I have a recovery drive so apparently that is not it.
If this is normal than others should have it also.

Anybody out there with a "Q' drive?

Probably, the Click & Run version of Microsoft Office has been installed.

along the same line of thought:

the inbult copy of Office is a trial version,
and that when one of the office programs, such as Word, is run,
- then that is 'pulled' from that Q: drive.
you then have to register your copy of the trial, and / or buy the full copy.

it's really a ploy to get a copy of Office onto your PC, - by pre-installing it onto your PC.
- most OPs just click on the register - and never actually buy a copy,
but this way - only gives them a copy of Word & Excell - and nothing else.
