Yes I expect someone to note that you can avoid the spwyare of DAEMON TOOLS but so far I've yet to find someone accomplish this on the first try. Removal of the pests it installs is NOT AUTOMATIC and the instructions they provided failed me and others.

Look for anything else or just go get ALCOHOL 120%.

There are several programs that enable you to do this:

- DAEMON Tools (said to be spyware by another poster)
- Alchohol 120%
- Virtual Clone Drive
- Nero ImageDrive (comes as part of the Nero 7 Suite)

To clarify.

Daemon Tools doesn't appear to have spyware, but I haven't found one person to avoid installing the bundled spyware yet.
