H drive may refer to a USB flash, USB camera, or SD memory card that was at one time plugged in but was removed without clicking to 'remove or eject removable device' and it is therefore not available because it does not 'know' it was removed. If you know what device, try reconnecting, accessing, and then removing properly.

Scan registry for that. H:\Desktop and see if it shows up. Might delete it.

Be sure A/V and malware scanners are up to date.

Did the drive letter change? If it did, change it back.
