Re: Latest Daemon Tools comes with adware

This is just caused by the "Search Bar" option.

You can just opt to not install that part of the package, it is not required for DT to work.

Please see this forum section of the deamon tools website:

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...
