    "Way too much adware"

    January 14, 2014  |   By TheAvo

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.48.1

    Pros

    Works as designed.

    Cons

    Way too much adware. I don't mind advertisements in the application that appear as I'm using the application, but don't install separate applications with the sole purpose of pushing advertisements. In this day and age of malware and viruses you can't trust third party applications.

    Summary

    Don't use applications that install separate applications you didn't ask for.

    "Worked just fine"

    January 7, 2014  |   By kgburden

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.48.1

    Pros

    The program worked exactly as I expected, allowing me to mount an ISO image to a virtual drive in order to install it on my hard drive.

    Cons

    The downloader and installer "invite" you to participate in a lot of adware.

    Summary

    Great program and it works just fine. I cannot stress enough that you need to be very careful and read through everything when both downloading and installing this program. Make sure to skip or decline the offers to have it download and install adware on your computer and you'll be just fine.

    "I used to recommend it but I can't any longer."

    January 3, 2014  |   By dkriss

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.48.1

    Pros

    Small, simple and easy to use.

    Cons

    Now loads ad ware.

    Summary

    I have been using a copy for a couple years without any problems. My wife needed to play some DVDs that I ripped so I installed the latest copy on her machine. After I installed it, I had to spend a couple hours cleaning up the mess. Not all of the crapware uninstalls properly.

    "Poor Installer - loads adware"

    December 6, 2013  |   By SMEYER_2001

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.48.1

    Pros

    Worked for the one task I wanted, ISO creation, then I removed it.

    Cons

    Installs adware, browser add-on, without any consent or acknowledgement. Forced browser close and force loaded mcafee.

    Summary

    Uninstalled everything it loaded and the application.

    "Updating installs malware"

    November 26, 2013  |   By chimpsmith

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.47.1

    Pros

    -Worked fine before I updated it

    Cons

    Updating to the newest version as prompted immediately installed malware. Was pretty difficult to get rid of. Daemon Tools has been known for some time now to connect to other companies' servers to share info and try to install stuff, but this is absurd.

    The DT team has repeatedly claimed they have clean installs, although this is also known to be false, as one of the main companies they make money from is a well known malware spreader. They've actually had to put restrictions on posting on their forums because of how many messages regarding the newest release and malware they're getting. It's pitiful, and they're trying to cover it up.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time on this. Even if you opt out of installing junkware, some users *still* have it installed. I didn't even get such an option when I updated, and it took me hours to get rid of this crap. To make matters worse, it seems that DT may assist in automatically reinstalling the malware, as it only stopped starting with windows and reinstalling once I removed Daemon Tools. Stay away.

    "Learn how to use CNET, don't get their web installer"

    September 24, 2013  |   By Maniac_34

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.47.1

    Pros

    Great program

    Cons

    Too many people are confusing this program with CNET's web installer. Daemon Tools is a great program and would never install malware. Choose direct download link guys!

    "INSTALLS SPYWARE - see Daemon tools forums"

    July 24, 2013  |   By mrbobdou

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.47.1

    Pros

    Program runs great, minus the spyware/adware that installs during the setup.

    Cons

    Installs spyware, even if you de-check all of the boxes during the install: http://forum.daemon-tools.cc/f33/spyware-daemon-tools-lite-installer-29962/

    "An easy to use, efficient virtual drive."

    June 20, 2013  |   By Bdrewsy

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.47.1

    Pros

    - Very simple to use.
    - Offers support for a wide variety of file formats
    - Low impact on system resources

    Cons

    - Installer does try to install some Adware (see summary)

    Summary

    To those that think they are *forced* to install the Adware from this program, please read properly before you click buttons. At the time of this writin

    Updated on Jun 20, 2013

    Whoops, hit the wrong button there.

    At the time of this writing you merely select the "Custom Install" option, un-check the box that will install all the adware junk and then hit next. A confirmation window then pops up of which you should read properly before clicking any of the buttons. Unlike what one would assume, this confirmation window is about installing the adware and clicking the "Ok" button gives the program permission to do so. You must click cancel to continue the install and to avoid installing the junk.

    This is why I took off a star from an otherwise perfectly good product. It does something a bit sneaky in the hopes of getting people to install the adware. Based on the amount of people saying how they're forced to install the adware, it's doing a good job.

    So really, basic computer usage 101 people: Always read the message boxe before clicking any of the buttons. It will save you a ton of trouble.

    "Fetch the "clean" one ppl....."

    June 8, 2013  |   By vmax22

    Version: DAEMON Tools v4.10 32bit 4.47.1

    Pros

    Use the "Direct Download Link" and it works like a dream. Nice program.

    Cons

    For those ppl having a BAD experience with adware, note: The Big Green Button is clearly marked with "CNET Installer Enabled". When you see that, look for their "Direct Download Link" instead.

    CNET's installer (571-kb in size)comes with a layer of adware endorsed by CNET, that's how they generate advertising income. You're under no obligation to use it if you don't want to. CNET kindly provide the direct link for direct download of the actual program (13.26-MB in size). Try it.

    Unfortunately ppl confuse the BAD experience with perfectly good programs, like Daemon Tools.

    Summary

    Works just fine.
