So I have a
C:\ Drive Labeled OSDisk (C:)
D:\ Drive Labeled Recovery (D:)
So a new drive showed up a couple days ago it is called
Local Disk (Q:)  
When I look for it  on Explorer  Q:\Drive has no properties that work correctly in any of the tabs that are displayed.  

I need to rid my PC of this drive.  How do I do it?

1. Start > Run > regedit  
2. navigate to: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
3. New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
4. Name = NoDrives
5. Value = 65536 (Decimal)

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

On step 4, you'll just need to name the dword value "NoDrives"

Sorry I'm tardy in my response.  Have'n't had a chance to work on it.  But you were with me the whole way and you get the points.
