Process 'daemon.exe' is the main application process associated with 'Daemon Tools' a disk image emulator and optical disc authoring program used by Microsoft Windows.
Daemon Tools is used as a tool to bypass software copy-protection. Some software publishers now attempt to disable Daemon Tools by searching for the daemon.exe process on startup and then attempting to disable it.
Daemon Tools in return has developed strategies to hide its presence from other software by means of randomising the name of the virtual drivers installed by its software.
