How can I manually or forcefully remove Daemon Tools Pro from Windows 10? Ever since the Windows 10 update I keep getting notifications from Windows telling me it cannot run Daemon Tools Pro on this version of Windows. I have gone to control panel and attempted to remove the program by uninstalling it but being that it cannot run on this version of Windows it can't run the uninstall either. I do not want to have to install a removing program unless I absolutely have to. I searched online for others who had the same issue and it seems some people were having problems with removing programs clearing all the files. I asked on another forum and the only help I got was people telling me to uninstall it or ask the manufacturer for help but not any actual tangible help. So I would appreciate if someone here could help me.

Have you tried uninstalling the program in Safe Mode?

In order to remove Daemon tools pro from windows 10 you must do the following

 

First hit ctrl+alt+del and bring up the task manager

Click show more details and then navigate to the "Startup" Tab

 

Find daemon tools in there and disable it, Then reboot your computer

 

Once it loads back up Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86) and look for the Daemon Tools Pro folder

 

Rename this folder to something like "Daemon tools pro backup"

 

Then reboot again

 

This will disable it and allow you to delete the folder or just leave it be and remove it from the installed programs list.

 

You will also not receive any more error messages.

 

Hope this helps I know it's a late reply but i'm sure someone else will benefit from this.
