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