What bug bit me?


it depends on what other anti virus program you are running. If you are running F-secure, then it will tell you that you have been infected. This is not the case, there are certain files that Alcohol 120% has that F-secure does not agree with.

How to remove a rogue Alcohol SCSCIVAX drive from your PC.


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 :

Hkey_Local_MachineSystemCurrentControlSetServices

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 !!!!

How to burn mdf file in alcohol?


You will have two files MDF and MDS, you need "alcohol 120%" to burn these to disc. First open alcohol and click on burn image on left side of window, then navigate to MDF and MDS files you want to burn, then double click the smaller one of the two files(can't remember which is which) and burn this, alcohol picks up the larger file from smaller one.(if you get stuck google "burn MDF MDS files")
