I noticed it today and I don't recall ever seeing it before. A google search didn't show anything.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDAOD] C:\WINDOWS\DAODx.exe

Thanks.

Did you try going to the Windows folder...and selecting properties?

The fact that there is no Google info...would cause me some alarm.

Hey there, I just googled this myself and couldn't find much other than this post, so decided I'd put it here in case other people get here by searching like I did.

Apparently it's related to Asus motherboard software. If you search the mobo software disk you should find it in the "Bin" and "Software/AOD" folders. Not sure which program it's related to tho. Only ones I've installed is EPU, Turbo, and PC Probe 2, but I didn't install the Asus AI software. I briefly installed Express Gate but uninstalled it and daodx.exe is still on my system. Hope that helps.

Hey guys, i didnt find anything on google about DAODx either except in here. Due to the fact that it is affiliated to the motherboard, and has a bar-code on it, i believe that it is the software that enables displayport content protection (encryption). At least on my motherboard there is a displayport i dunno about u other guys. Dont take my word for it though im not very sure.

Hello... I was curious about this file as well. I found this post in the ASUS forums, gives some clarity to it.
Asus Forum Info DAODx.exe

It hasn't caused any problems that I am aware of, but I didn't recognize it and the lack of information on Google made me suspicious. Hope this is useful

:thumbsup: :flowers:

The two files you submitted to Virus Total are clean and are SAFE to leave on the system.
The file daodx.exe is related to the ASUS motherboard

About all I can find on this file listing - There are a few listings on Google - This seems the most logical -

DAODx or rundaod = a driver component part of the Realtek Gigabit ethernet controller install package. Disabling this process may result in failure to connect to the internet through this device. (Applies to Realtek RTL8168C/8111C Nic's)

Regards -
EDIT - If you have a ASUS Motherboard , this should be OK -

I too have been looking for info on this process after purchasing an Asus Crosshair IV Formula and have learned it is installed (in my case) when I installed the AMD Overdrive Utility which I installed a month after the ethernet controller. It has had no effect on the ethernet controller at all after I uninstalled AMD Overdrive and than manually deleted the DAODx.EXE from the Windows file.
