    I have a virtual drive on my hard drive, apparently installed when I installed or used MagicIso. I've tried to remove it through Device Manager and that seems to work temporarily, but every time I start up the computer the Find New Hardware goes into action and tries to get me to install it again.

    I'm using Windows 2000...I've run MagicIso and tried to "unmount all drives", I've set the number of drives to zero, and I've unchecked Automount. None of this prevents Find New Hardware from trying to install this MagicIso virtual drive again.

    Can someone suggest a way to permanently get rid of this virtual drive.

    Thanks,

    John

    Uninstall MagicISO. That should remove the drive that the program installed.

    Then if I later want to use MagicIso, will I have to accept that virtual drive as part of the package?

    Maybe. Look carefully at the install process and see if there is any choice in the matter.

    I use Virtual CloneDrive from SlySoft. It is free and works perfectly for me. It had a choice for one or more drives. No crapware.
