I seem to have several phantom Local Disks mapped to different letters that are of 0 bytes in size.
Strangely, they do not show up when I view my drives through Windows Explorer. But if I open an application such as ACDSee Pro or Microsoft Word and then go to open a file I can see all these Local Disks mapped to different letters.
This means when I plug in my external hard disk it ends up mapped to letter R instead of its usual G which messes up any programs I have pointing to it by default.
How did they get there and more importantly, how do I get rid of them?
I'm on a Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit machine.
