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?
