    I'd say to uninstall Easy CD Creator and try using Alcohol again but it sounds like your problem may be bigger than just that.

    Did uninstalling Easy CD Creator help or are you still getting freezes and blue screens?

    If you're willing to reformat and do a fresh install it'll take care of software conflicts but, to be safe, I'd suggest adding your programs one or two at a time creating a new restore point with each addition and testing them for a bit so you can roll back if you run into conflicts. If you choose this route I would highly suggest NOT installing Easy CD Creator again because it is notorious for conflicting with other burning software. Go with either RecordNow DX or Nero 6 - both are worth every penny.

    What OS are you running?
