Are there any general opinions on system problems after installing Alcohol 52% free version?
It has some useful features that things like magicISO don't have.

When installed with an ASUS P8Z68 type motherboard and i7 2600k (see my specs) I got of all things "TurboVhelp" application error from the AIsuite. I think the link may be coincidental since easily repeat the error.

Alcohol (like daemon tools) uses a driver (sptd.sys) I believe, that frequently causes BSOD's. MagicISO uses a different driver.

Most people can get away with using DT or 52/120 with no trouble just an FYI.
