A virtual CD/DVD manager, the Virtual Daemon Manager allows you to mount a virtual optic drive so that you can utilize a disk image as if it is running from a physical drive. Daemon.exe runs in the background and detects any iso file accessed through Windows Explorer. It allows the file to be double-clicked and opened as if it was a true physical drive. Daemon Tools is distributed by Disc Soft Ltd. and supported by Microsoft. Founded in 2005, Disc Soft's primary products are various Daemon software versions.
If you want a detailed security rating about your daemon.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.
Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!
