  • wiki daemon tools

    I noticed the wiki on dt:
    "All versions of Daemon Tools since 4.03 are bundled with SaveNow, an adware product of WhenU.[1] Although the adware can be deselected during installation, this is not made clear to the user as it masquerades as "Daemon Tools Search Bar"

    Isn't it a good idea to use the real name (saveNow) instead of 'dt search bar'? I think this is just a little more clear to the end user.

    The Daemon Tools Search Bar and WhenU SaveNow work seperately. You can remove SaveNow, and keep the SearchBar. No adware will be installed if Daemon Tools Search Bar checkbox is disabled in installation dialog, or if you cancel WhenU EULA.

      I didn't know that, but i always thought the point of the toolbar was to get revenue from whenU. I have to agree with the author of the wiki that is looks a little like masquerading which is kind of a pity since you guys are totally open about it the extra software.
      Well, never mind.. it probably wouldn't make that much of a difference anyway.
