File: daemon.exe

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.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/daemon.exe.html

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

Kept telling me I had a missing file to reload the program - what program? After much research found many relating similar problems with DaemonProcess. Uninstalled it but it fouled up my Norton 360, my Firefox, and has a file error for Windows 7. Computer has been "down" for about 2 weeks. Using Win 8.1 now but not happy. Have not been able to get these problems resolved through the websites. Lucky
Constantly appears. Now I can't get printer to print. Will reinstall printer drivers see if that works. Think it came from a "free" anti spyware Ad. I knew better but tried it anyway Ed
