Tip & How-To about THQ Alcohol 120% (alcohol120)
This SCSIVAX drive is a virtual CDROM device that is usually created by Alcohol. Normally, the uninstallation of Alcohol will remove this device but its not always guaranteed.
There are two possible solutions to this :
1. If you still your copy of Alcohol, then reinstall it. Once installed, you should then be able to find a setting in Alcohol (under Options->Virtual Drive menu I think) & set the number of virtual drives created on startup to zero. This will make the SCSIVAX drive disappear. Once gone, you can uninstall Alcohol again.
2. The other option, if you are comfortable with registry editing, is this :
Run regedit.exe, then in the left pane, navigate to :
Right click on the Service branch & select 'Export'. This will create a backup of this particular part of the registry.
Next, inside this Services folder, you should find keys for the Alcohol driver. Depending on the version of alcohol you had installed, these will be named either a347scsi and a347bus OR vax347s.sys and vax347b.sys
Delete each of the relevant keys.
Close regedit, then open the windowssystem32drivers folder & delete the files of the same names. (Or move them to another folder if you prefer, just in case!).
And presto they will be gone !!!!
