    Hey there.I've been getting a little problem with my computer lately.

    2 unknown cd-rom popped up on my system and it slows down my computer performance.I've uninstalled it to make the computer running great again.

    But the problem now is that I want to completely remove it.
    Or any other suggestion?

    Here is a picture of the problem ( the cd-rom in the red box is the one that I want to remove)

    That may be an image drive. Have you activated any image drive using Nero or Magic ISO or similar softwares ?? Check it out

    The virtual drive has not been removed from the system. How are you removing it? It needs to be removed in Daemon Tools by setting the number of devices to 0.
