When I turned on my computer a message popped up telling me that Windows was installing a device driver. When I went to My Computer I noticed that it now showed a new Removable Disk which I don't have.

Using Acronis True Image I restored to an earlier image but as soon as I rebooted Windows installed the Removable Disk again.

If I double click on it in My Computer I am asked to insert a disk into it. Clicking Properties shows the disk to be full. If I right click on it I can opt to eject it and it will tell me its safe to remove it. Trouble is there is no disk to remove.

Going to Disk Management it lists the removable disk but where the other drives show a white partition with a blue bar over it, next to the Removable Disk is nothing but an empty space.
What I would like to know is if anyone else has experienced this problem and have a solution to it.
