I have one CD drive installed on my PC, but when I go into My Computer it shows three. The first is an Asus which is installed, the other two are AXV DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdRom Device and Image Simulation CdRom Device.

What's more perplexing is that I have no SCSI controller let alone devices installed inside my PC. I go into device manager and uninstall these devices, but they show up every time I reboot.

Any ideas how to get rid of them so they stay gone?

It sounds to me as though you have a VIRTUAL CD(or two) installed. These allow you to copy a CD image to disk and run it from there as if it was a real CD.

I do have Alcohol 120% installed, and I thought that may have been the problem. However, Alcohol doesn't start at start-up. Does that make any difference?

The setup for alcohol 120 installs that itself but you can dedelt it if need be from device manager.
