I have a slight problem.

My Maxtor drive has gotten some kind of thingie (virii??) that first made all my files go wheeeee and now the drive itself has gotten another name, something like. Oazter:5""-."""..2.22"" and is 'locked by other application' when one tries to access it from Win9X or Win2000.

Now have anyone some kind of clue about how to fix this.
Norton antivirii say that my primary c: drive is a ok. although the faulty d: drive is inaccesible.

Maxtors program for low level formatting will only say:
'Hey, thats not a maxtor drive. I can't do jack about it'
