Good disc emulation software

So I've recently done a rebuild and when I go to re-download alcohol 52% I find reports that it's riddled with viruses, I do a quick look around only to find similar reports about every one I can find. Am I looking in the wrong places? Are there safe options out there? Not having disc emulation is making it pretty bloody tricky to install the copy of Visual Studio I get off the MSDN.

Re: Good disc emulation software

A quick google reveals people complaining of it installing spyware and viruses now and wishing they could find an old install of it.

Re: Good disc emulation software

Windows 8 has built in mounting - if you're running that. Damned if I can find what I used to use for mounting CDs though. It was good as well, but it's been that long since I've needed that functionality!

Try some of these?

Re: Good disc emulation software

I imagine a lot of drive emulation stuff will probably flag up as false positives, mostly due to software emulating hardware and the likelyhood that it will possibly need unsigned drivers to do so.

Was it "go post our urls everywhere you can, and don't you even dare think about the context of the post!"?
