Exclamation Prime95 create Local Disk (Z:) on WinXP?

I've been running prime95 for a week now. I just noticed on the seventh day that I now have a local disk z:. I've never had it before and never had it while running prime95 that I know. When I try to explore it, it says it refers to a location that is unavailable, that is could be on a network. Any advice?

As far as I know this has nothing to do with Prime95.

Sounds like a shared drive over a network, but I don't know where it may come from. Can you right click and check in properties to see if you get the address where it is supposed to link to?

right clicking and going to properties, only one tab is shown, "General" giving "type: Local disk", "File system: RAW". Used space and free space are all 0 bytes. I friend of mine was once infected with a computer viruz that added a no existant z: drive. It messed with his Nortan antivirus.

That has nothing to do with prime95. Sometimes programs like Alcohol120 or DemonTools that are used to deal with iso images create virtual drives (the icon should be a CD), but if it looks like a network drive I have no idea where it comes from. Run an antivirus for your peace of mind, there are many good free ones. But whatever it is, it is not related to prime95.
