after trying out the above step and rebooting the machine, now we are not able to
see C drive.it seems hidded.Please let me know how to make C drive appearing.
reverse the steps you performed.
change the value to 0 and then click the radio button decimal and type 65536 then right click your taskbar and click task manager and go to the prosess’s tab ad end explorer.exe then go to the applications tab and click new task and put in explorer then hit enter and go to computer/my computer and you wil see your drives back as well as local disk Q: is gone!!
мне удалось удалить этот диск Q достаточно просто – задал в поиске по реестру значение Q: и аккуратненько удалил все записи, касающиеся этого диска… потому что там были и другие, содержание Q:, но не относящиеся к этому диску. После перезагрузки этот диск отовсюду исчез.

i’ve tried the same thing, and mine went hiding, but then i fixed it by deleting the reg file and restarting explorer. (both drives are there now) i think that happened because my version in not beta. how would i get v.14 (latest) to hide the drive?
thnks…! dat was nice nd easyy! 🙂
When I go into the registry, the last part of the path you mentioned doesn’t exist… for me it’s:
and after that is: Attachments, NonEnum, and System. None of them contain Explorer.
Would I be able to get to the right place by doing HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ instead, or can I not bypass Policies? It’s almost the same when I try it for HKCU, but there’s nothing inside Policies except the one item (of binary data, I guess?) Thanks for your help!
Maybe I should’ve mentioned that it’s just Microsoft Office 2010 that I’m using, not the BETA version. I don’t know if that makes a difference.
This registry key is not dependent on the version of Office installed on the system.
Since the key does not exist, I would suggest that you add the key.
Windows 7 uninstall failed and microsoft knowledge base states basically you cannot remove this.
To get rid of just Q :
under this tree I found a value of “Q”
Rebooted and Q is no longer displayed on my COMPUTER
going back to office 2k3
I only found HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ wthout Explore.What is the problem?? Thanks you
Try creating the key yourself.
thanx…….this is really helpful
I changed the key but Q disk’s still there…!
figured it out…:)
this trick will not work if the disk is renamed..
HKCU is wrong. It has to be HKLM (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE)!
Did you read the entire article? I listed both HKCU and HKLM?
hi all 🙂
i can’t delete the local disk Q although i have the method mentioned before considering registry and key!! but nothing happened …
please help me and tanx all

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am
nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
in the above pictures 2 registries are displayed but my laptop showing 4. Is it okay
Yes. That’s fine. You can have any number of keys in that location.
Here’s an example: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc962658.aspx
