How to Install Daemon Tools without Spyware/Adware

The latest version of Daemon Tools contains evil. Here is how to install this nice program without the spyware.


Daemon tools is an excellent program that allows one to use CD/DVD images/ISOs without burning them.

Microsoft has developed free, unsupported software that does this as well.

The problem with the latest version of Daemon Tools is that it contains spyware/adware.

First, notice that you can get older, non-spyware versions at the bottom of the download page. If you have to use the latest version, here is how to install it without installing the spyware.

The SaveNow and WhenU.com software it installs is obviously not friendly.

Although it is not obvious, NOT installing the adware is actually very easy. During the installation process, just make sure the Tools Search Bar checkbox is not checked.
