Almost everytime I open my PC, I'm it shuts down. When I ran safe mode, I'v noticed a proccess called vax347b.sys which right after it is being loaded the computer crashes.

After some reading, I understand that there is a connection between this file and "Alcohol 120%".

I removed this software from my computer, yet still this file exists. How do I stop this service? What is the name of this service?

I'm running Windows XP Professional SP2.

Thanks in advance!
