Alcohol’s virtual drive hasn’t caused any dramas on my system but I suffered horrible system instabilities when I installed clonecd’s virtual drive and some lesser problems with that of daemon tools’ drive.
Moral is to beware of virtual drive proggies generally. If after you install one, you don’t have problems, fine. However, if there are any signs of conflicts or general system instability, remove them as they’re not all that useful and both alcohol and clonecd work fine without them.
