Dear all,

I love to use daemon tools and have just downloaded the latest version from
the offical site.  Immediate finish the installation, I click an option to
install an attached advance search function.  However, the so call advance
search function is aka Adware called WhenU.Save.

I can't uninstal it from the control panel until I use the Process Explorer
to kill all relevent processes of WhenU.Search and WhenU.Save.

I than also downloead a trial version of CounterSpy (will active 15 days) to remove all the
remaining files, registry key and folders.

Beware guys! I am quite upset to see daemon tools becoming a adware spreader...
