    "Contains HIDDEN MALWARE! Don't download!"

    April 10, 2014  |   By Swiftek

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.49.1

    Pros

    It would be a decent disk image tool, but having malware obviously ruins it.

    Cons

    Contains HIDDEN (that's the kicker) adware called "BITOOL" that is not described anywhere the typical user would ever see. The developers of Daemon Tools Lite first lied by claiming a false positive, but then finally admitted to intentionally putting it in their product, and now defiantly refuses to remove it or to declare it openly to users. This kind of behavior from a software vendor is absolutely inexcusable.

    Summary

    The developer is dishonest. Don't support them or their products! There are better tools out there for free. "Virtual Clone Drive" is a great one I've chosen to take the place of Daemon Tools Lite - it's free in cost and free of malware.

    "Auto accepts ads"

    March 22, 2014  |   By skangobank

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.49.1

    Pros

    Mounts .iso files

    Cons

    Has ads on the right hand side with the message "If you do not respond in 3 minutes answer will default to yes."

    That's malware.

    "Works well but may not be necessary."

    March 15, 2014  |   By alexmonte

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.49.1

    Pros

    It works fine and should be great for users of previous windows operating systems. If you are like me and Windows 8 tends to throw curveballs at you, this would be a good software to use.

    Cons

    Windows 8 *should* be able to mount ISO files without this software; however, in my case it only asks what program to use to open the file.... I probably just screwed something up in the settings or default programs but in any case windows won't do it for me. If you can get windows to mount it for you then you really don't need this.

    Summary

    Windows 8 users really don't need this unless you've done something wrong. If you did screw something up or if you are using a different OS this would be a good tool to have.

    "Question for ya'll"

    March 15, 2014  |   By klepp0906

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.49.1

    Pros

    Is daemon tools needed anymore?

    Cons

    since windows 8 has built in iso and vhd mounting

    Summary

    Im considering it but if it has no benefits as opposed to the native mounting built into windows now... the choice is obvious.
