Not a problem if you installed it. Find the FireDaemonUI.exe on your HD to see what's up.
FireDaemon is a utility that allows you to install and run virtually any native Win32 application or script (eg. BAT/CMD, Perl, Java, Python, TCL/TK) as a Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003 & Longhorn service.

I've got this deamon file in this folder. C:\windows\system32\cfg - it has FireDaemonUI.exe and FireDaemon.exe but hidden, and i dont remember to have installed it, so it must be bad since it has on that folder IEXPLORER.exe too disguized as Mirc.

If you installed FireDaemon you are fine. If you didn't you might have a problem.

Best practices for resolving FireDaemon issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with FireDaemon. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
