Windows Registry characteristic that allows programs to be applied automatically when opening the system boots can be treated by Daemon to cheat attempts to remove itself during the proceeding of badware removal. Daemon deceives buyers either by transporting on desirable programs or by befooling them into setting up it (trojan method). Received software that can either be legal can do no harm but the cross-bundled one which is badware. When not having Daemon removal tools a buyer downloads a friendly software and the installer supplementary setups Daemon without any seek block it.

Problem Summary: Daemon Removal didn't detect Daemon Spy

Hello. I installed Daemon Tools a few months ago and decided to remove it because i don't use it. 1-2 weeks ago, whenever i shutdown my PC, it says "Ending Program: Daemon Spy". I didn't know what it was so i looked it up. It turned out that it was a virus and i had to remove it completely. I used MBAM (detected some files, didnt detect daemon), SAS (detected cookies), Exterminate It (didnt detect DAEMON), Spy Hunter (detected spyware, required me to pay), and the Daemon Removal tool (didn't detect anything). I'm sure i have the virus. How can I remove it?
