Seems to be a driver for Alcohol 120%
Don't view and open disks on DVD -ROM device, is tetected like a rootkit
Its Installed by Deamon Tools and can stop your system from booting if the driver conflicts with another device

It may be from Alcohol 120% that creates a virtual SCSI CDRom drive

Gehört zu - Part of: Alcohol 120%
Yes, looks like Alcohol 120% virtual drive driver. After forced removal Alc.120% stopped working - after reinstall vax347s.sys appeared again. So i'm positive about that.
Relates to SCSI Controller and/or virtual optical drives for Alcohol 120%, May be unnecessary if Alcohol is not installed.

Best practices for resolving Vax347s issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Vax347s. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
