that probably means the program is running....hit ctrl + alt + del to open windows task manager and look for 'daemon.exe' or something and end the task...be careful in there though...ending an important task can crash some stuff.

I'm guessing that you installed daemon tools twice and windows is starting up with both of them running. To stop daemon tools from starting whenever windows boots, right-click on the daemon tools icon as the program is running (should show up in your taskbar) and select options and uncheck 'autostart'
