Daemon tools, despite the name is not dangerous on the surface. There is debate over the fact that it uses RootKit like kernel hooks and a hidden registry key to perform its duties. Daemon tools is used to bypass CD copy protection for the purpose of creating backup disks and other "uses". I use happliy.  See also: Link   benszoko

It now comes with adware and spyware. After intalling it on my notebook using Window Vista, Window Defender warned some misbehaved process, hidden registry key, spyware and adware. I try to delete the process but it seems to still run as background process. The hard drive works all the time.   peter
