Maybe, it´s Daemon´s driver, but XP gets unstable about this file and u get blue screens every time u boot related to this file, I had to cancel the service that uses this file working in the XP installation repairing console, and then I could uninstall the pnp bios extension n control panel - system ´cause it was causing some conflict and this sued the d347bus.sys, now everyhin is working fine

its a driver for the virtual cd in Deamontools.
d347bus.sys is driver installed by Daemon Tools (virtual CD/DVD drive).
Harmless but essential file for Daemon Tools. If there is a problem, boot into safe mode and delete it and and d347prt.sys from windows\system32\drivers\, then boot into windows as normal and uninstall daemon tools, restart again, then reinstall daemon tools (if you still want it on)

my computer HANGS when loading so start in safemode is ok only if i dont load the D347bus.sys I think it got corupted or it not goodso I'm deleteing it
It stores configuration data directly connected to the bios setup. It's needed.
Dameon tools driver... Almost certain to cause system failure if you play any games or use any software that checks for emulation as they will attempt to stop it.
I have had problems and only since i have installed Deamon tools, safe mode won't load up because of this file and its hard to get back into xp, am guessing because of this file, i would remove it if you have it, i have done and hasn't affected xp nor Deamon tools (it's fixed my problem)
Daemon tools item, caused boot failure. Connected hdd to another computer, added file where windows said it was missing. Boot failure fixed, removed daemon tools, re-installed. No problems forthwith.

When I boot in safe mode considering d347bus.sys, the computer turn off with no posibility of interaction
Make sure that your d347bus.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers. It's necessary for Daemon Tools. If you have more than 1 d347bus.sys or it is not where it should be then fix it. It is NOTdangerous when it is the legitimate file.
Daemontools virtual scssi driver
I've had Daemon Virtual CD Install for two years without problems. I installed a virtual floppy driver and my system started crashing when loading the d347bus.sys. At this point, I do not know if it is a conflict between the two programs or if the virtual floppy program is the whole problem.

This file was left on the machine, and it's still loaded after uninstall. Use special removal tools, if you want to get rid of it. If you are using daemon (brilliant program) u need it.
Daemon Tools driver: if you installed windows service pack 2 and are using a ATA HD then it will bluescreen you or make your startup play a loop... to fix, rename that file and sptd.sys... well it worked for me anyways. Either that or you can reinstall seems like you need it b/c if you didnt it would start-up... windows deems it as a virus i think...
If you have an ATA HD and Windows service pack 2, your comp will either get bluescreened or play a startup loop and never load
Suspect its associated with ZoneAlarm 70_302_000. File prevented XP SP2 from starting. Reinstalled ZA and now it all appears to be working again.
daemon tools driver and it may give this error when u disable primary or secondary ide channels
Deamon tool driver for virtual drive. may enter in conflict with other drive and generate errors at start up
I had the same problem as above; Windows wouldn't boot, it was the SCSI Driver of Daemon Tools, only the file name was different, it was dtscsi.sys. So if you can't find the variant d347bus.sys or d347prt.sys, try dtscsi.sys.
Daemon tools driver. Can cause booting trouble. Was able to remove with safe mode, and then boot succesfully.
had to delete it to get my pc back up and running... error while booting after blackout...
When I boot in safe mode considering d347bus.sys, the computer turn off with no posibility of interaction. I have WXP with SP2 and using Demaon Tools... but the problem appear after other software installation. I deleted it, but this file is not the problem. Finally, I have reinstalled the OS

it's Daemon File, it made my xp hang (black screen after windows logo), rename/delete it to make windows booting normal.
  Eri Winadnar  
Daemon Tools driver file, KernelMode hook (may show up as a rootkit) to create a virtual CD/SCSI drive. If this file is removed or corrupted and Daemon tools or Windows tries to load it, it has the potential to cause a blue screen (STOP error). The simplest fix is to enter Windows in Safe Mode and uninstall the program and verify that the machine boots normally afterwards. Also check your STOP code (0x########) against as not all STOPs mean the same thing.

Best practices for resolving d347bus issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with d347bus. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the d347bus.sys process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
