    How did those virtual drives get installed in the first place? Daemon Tools? Alcohol_120? You should first try to use the original application to change the number of virtual drives down to zero, then uninstall the application entirely ( or at least use msconfig to prevent it from loading at windows startup).

    Use msconfig to see what programs are loaded as part of the startup. Uncheck the culprit program. Those drives are installed anew with each windows startup. Then go to device manager and remove the virtual drives if they appear there, but only after you're sure that the startup routines won't put them bck.
