Hey there.

Is this a false positive or does Daemon Tools use OpenCandy?

Open Candy comes into play when choosing a test licence during DT Pro/Lite setup.
Afaik ESET is the only company which still classifies Open Candy as potentially unsafe.

opencandy installs malware on your computer fresh copy of windows yours was my first and only download and I get smacked in the face with an optomiser add that had no close button very fricken rude. you need to clean your system and if your really using opencandy as a legitimite softare then you need to cease that operation becuase infecting peoples computer with mallware is just as bad as installing a virus and sometimes worse.
