I recently brought Rome: total war and now i got a problem, it wont start it keep saying CD/DVD emulation software has been detected. "Please disable all CD/DVD emulation software and re-start the game" True I had Alcohol54 installed a long time ago, but I uninstalled it and deleted all traces of it, I think/hope but im not sure. Could some of you allknowing Software Geeks please help me?

Search for alcohol registry entries and look for folders and files related to alcohol.

Ha Windows doesn't kill every thing you know. Its still in there. Like Glasius said. Delete its registry and look for any thing else that may still have it in there.

Offtopic but i find it pretty sad that they don't allow you to have any burning software/programms installed since A) By law you are allowed to create a backup of any CD/game/... though it can not leave the house or be ran or installed on an other computer B) People use burning software to burn other things then games (backups) aswell, to name a few: music (witch you can download legally on certain sites), photos, animaties, files and anything for presitations or work. At college we always have to hand in a version on CD of whatevr project we are doing for example. /rant

Yes its sad that usefull technologies are used to carry out illegal operations.

To enter the registry and search press Start----> Run and type in regedit The registry has its own search function. Shortkey CTRL + F, F3 brings next search results.
