"Yes Spyware and Yes Adware!! Cnet needs to review"

October 31, 2010  |  By bborne23

 |  Version: Daemon Tools Lite 4.35.6

Pros

Maybe it has many features, but I've chosen not to use this program because upon installation this morning Avira immediately reported "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen" Trojan

Cons

Again the Lite version of this program upon installation this morning Avira immediately reported "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen found in file DTLite.exe"

Summary

...so that's the Spyware part of the lie they perpetrate. As for Adware it IS installed if you don't go out of your way to click off 2 installation options preset to install searchbars etc

Go to the Forums for Daemon Tools and you'll see *dozens* of threads from people reporting two or three classes of Trojans. The admins dismiss all of these reports as false positives. Personally I'd rather move on to something that doesn't put my data/information at risk.

"Works fine in Windows 7"

September 30, 2010  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: Daemon Tools Lite 4.35.6

Pros

Excellent tool for mounting and unmounting disc images and files without a physical drive. I use it for burning and ripping audio files. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

It installed without errors the first time in Windows 7 Home Premium on two different PCs. Contrary to what one other reviewer claimed, no special or complicated workaround.was required. The other reviewer also recommended MagicDisc as an alternative, but I found its GUI to be poorly designed and its file handling to be awkward. By comparison, Daemon Tools Lite 4.35.6 is straightforward and is by far the better tool of the two..

"Installs spyware, unwanted toolbar"

September 20, 2010  |  By zensojourner

 |  Version: Daemon Tools Lite 4.35.6

Pros

Unknown. The fact that it installed spyware (see below) makes me not want to use it at all.

Install at your own risk.

Cons

This program installs spyware and an unwanted tool bar, replaces your home page AND default search engine. No entry in the add/remove software utility for uninstalling the program.

Summary

I won't use a program that makes wholesale changes to my system and browser configuration that have nothing to do with the program itself. This thing changed my browser settings, installed a toolbar, and does not provide an uninstaller in Add/Remove programs. I would recommend against installing this program. Find something else that won't try to take over your machine.

"What a breeze! Daemon Tools Light works superbly!"

September 08, 2010  |  By AnthonyStarfield

 |  Version: Daemon Tools Lite 4.35.6

Pros

Daemon Tools Light is so easy to use! I just dropped the name of my ISO file onto the icon of a virtual hard drive. The file opened up; iit ran just fine!

Cons

It's just a minor point. I did have to restart my computer to get Daemon Tools Light up and running. (And, like my high school history teacher, I disagree with misspelling words. It's LIGHT not Lite, DISK not DISC.)

Summary

Wow, Daemon Tools Light is super easy to use! It worked flawlessly with Windows XP.
