Can't unistall virtual drives

i have tried this

  1. Now go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager
    1a. Under SCSI and RAID controllers delete the key for vax347s (or a347scsi for previous version)
    1b. Under System devices delete the Plug and Play BIOS Extension

but the drive or key is not under SCSI and RAID controllers but it is under DVD/CD-ROM drives and i have unistalled it from but it keep coming back after i reboot…what else can i try to erase this virtual drive?

I suggest that you reinstall alcohol, then set your number of virtual drives at 0 and then uninstall via add/remove programs. That method generally removes any virtual drive created by alcohol.

thank you for your advice but i have tried that too

Which trial version did you have installed?

I cant really say i dont remember the first one i had but when i re installed it i had 1.9.5.4327

Can you reinstall Alcohol and post a complete system report so we can see what driver may be still residue on your system?
