Default Uninstalling virtual drives? Please help!

A while ago i downloaded some programs, some of which daemon tools and alcohol 120%, and some others, some which i forget! And i made virtual drives so i wouldnt have to keep my game discs, just run isos off them. I stopped doing them but i left the virtual drives there. Now im looking to install Wrath of the Lich King, and i guess its got some DVD protection from having virtual drives installed. I cant figure out how to uninstall them. Daemon tools says nothing is mounted, and no drives are active, and alcohol 120% is out of free trial and requires a key to be used. How can i turn off these freakin virtual drives so i can install this game? Im fiendin for my wows. please help.


i also tried right clicking on them going to properties and hardware and uninstalling driver, it will vanish but reappear on restart.
