    "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.

    January 29, 2014   |   By tonethetech

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.48.1

    Pros

    None because I refuse to install

    Cons

    Adware/Spyware BEWARE!!!

    Summary

    Used to be a great program for mounting ISO's......now greed has consumed the developers who will literally stop at nothing to infect your computer with adware/spyware upon installation! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

    "Just as good as it's always been."

    January 26, 2014   |   By cookiebun

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.48.1

    Pros

    Give you 4 free virtual drives.

    Cons

    Pay attention during the install or you'll end up with some adware.

    Summary

    Those of you whining about the adware: PAY ATTENTION DURING THE INSTALL!
    All you have to do is select "skip" and the adware will not install. How difficult is that?

    "Installed on a brand new computer."

    January 14, 2014   |   By Skuzze

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 4.40.2

    Pros

    Lets you do what it says.

    Cons

    Installs a lot of spyware without your knowledge.

    Summary

    I recently got a brand new computer, with all of the security and such on it, scans every so often. Download Daemon Tools from their main site, untick all of the 3rd party installations it wants to put on.

    What a surprise, I have a bunch of spyware and crap trying to install a search engine to get new smilies, and tries to change my home page to their a "GET NEW SMILIES" and a bunch of other rubbish.

    "Way too much adware"

    January 14, 2014   |   By TheAvo

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 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 07, 2014   |   By kgburden

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 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 03, 2014   |   By dkriss

    Version: DAEMON Tools Lite 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.
