    Default Completely removing Daemon Tools Lite, Daemon-Search.com

    I had recently installed windows vista and the latest version of daemon tools lite. Upon installing daemon tools i noticed that my searches were being filtered through 'http://www.daemon-search.com/search?q=www.WHATEVERSITE.COM' by that i mean if it believed the address typed was incorrect it would go to this page and sometimes even if the address was correct but would not connect. I never checked the boxes to install the search bar. Upon uninstalling daemon tools Lite i still have this problem. Can you please tell me how to remove this?

    Default Completely removing Daemon Tools Lite.

    Hi, i recently installed windows vista and daemon tools lite. Having unticked all the unnecessary boxes including the search tool everything was fine. I then noticed my when entering websites they were being filtered through http://www.daemon-search.com. This became of particular annoyance when i noticed it would return 'results' and not the correct website for correct addresses as well as web addresses incorrectly. For example 'http://www.daemon-search.com/search/web?q=www.WHATEVERSITE.com'. I then uninstalled Daemon Tools Lite and this problem still persists. Any help in removing this troublesome problem would be greatly appreciated?

    Can you remove "DAEMON Search" from the list of default search providers in your browser?
    (uninstalling of DT Lite is not related with your default search providers list in your Internet browser)

    Or can you change you default search provider to another search provider?


    Which Internet browser do you use?

    I think that this complete collection of various sites, bundles adware, etc., is just rubbish.

    Everyone, I mean EVERYONE manage to download the Daemon Tools from ONE site, daemon-tools.cc that is.

    And what is this crap by bundle shit with the executable? Please solve this be doing something similar to Messenger Plus! installer where they one a SINGLE page ask if you want to support by installing the bundled crap, or you could refuse and install the software in a proper maner.

    You also announced that with version 4.30, the adware is removed, but still there is shit bundles with the installer...

    Fix the broken state!

    In 4.30 there is only the search bar, and furthermore the installer asks if you wish to change your startpage/homepage to DAEMON Search. It is simple to deselect if you for some reason do not wish to support the team by installing it, and the installer does not attempt to trick users into doing anything they do not wish.

    If they were to drop any revenue generating components, it would mean that paying customers paid for pretty much all development of the free DT (DT Lite). Alternatively they could stop offering a free edition of DT altogether. I'm convinced most users of DT Lite would not want that to happen.

    The problem is that, with 4.30 three options of adware were selected to install, not two as you suggest.

    @Nordoelum
    Stop talking in such manner and respect other people!
    Screenshot of adware module in DT 4.30, please.
    In case you are waiting for the fix (if the problem is really here), give us detailed description without expressive discussion.
