Scan both the installation CD(s) and the directory the game is installed to.

As far as I know it blacklists the miniport driver (it attaches a copy of the file to the scan report it generates) It does so by unpacking a series of DLL's into the temp folder SInf**.dll (** = 16,32,NT) and then using them queries the drive information.

I was unable to intercept the dll calls using a dummy dll -it seems to verify the authenticity (well... duh ;) ), but if you don't have them already i can post the codes it sends to DeviceIOControl (the NT ver), as well as some other info i gathered.

aXnCorp: I recommend you simply play from the original CD and wait for the new Daemon version.

Mayday: the SInf*.dll is also copied to system32\drivers and set to start on boot-up as system level drivers, they can be removed from device manager -> non-plug and play devices.

That's why the games protected by SecuROM require Administrator privileges - if the SecuROM protection is removed they can be run as normal user and from virtual drives.
