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?

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.
