Greetings and Welcome to Google Drive  Help Community ðŸ˜€
 
When you click on a public Google Drive file while browsing a website it places a link to the file in the Google  Drive shared area. Click on the 3 dots to  the right of the file and select remove.

No, it wasn't her, I have the same issue man. Google has had this issue for 4 YEARS and haven't sorted it out. There's no way to remove the doc from your drive, as you'll only have viewing permissions. Google doesn't give a crap about their customers, move over to another service like the rest of us frustrated and betrayed.

After removing the doc from quick access, do a filter search for the doc and remove it from any other location. Now clear the APP or Browser's Cache. Close and restart  the APP or Browser. Kindly provide an  update.

Same issues here. Some how there is a exploitation in Google's drive shared folder , and someone has access to it , it's very confusing how this occurs and my mind cant seem to bend around the fact that there is no option to turn off public sharing in this folder , any specific controls that might be relevant to apply to it just dont exist. These spam messages could possibly be links to further malware and so on. A very big security risk to windows devices . Idk how it effects chromedesk like mine , but I am very surprised with this being such a common problem that it's not fixed yet.
