I was just using ubuntu for the longest time, and Just yesterday I just reinstalled 7 into my pc lol.
I know that before I installed unbuntu on my PC, it would show all the USB and SATA positions, even though some were not connected to anything or being used.
Any car can get you to where you need to go, but a special car gets you there with a smile on your face.
Remember, life is a journey, enjoy the ride.

I wouldn't worry about it. I doubt if it is malware, but to be safe, run a anti-malware scan to ease your mind.
If you want to investigate further, create the registry String in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment
and give it a value of "1"
Reboot. You will see in Device Manager devices which have been installed but which may not be plugged in at the moment. Then you can manually delete it. It probably won't be under Disks.
