OK so I have a relitivly new computer. And i just noticed this Processor running "DAODx.exe" I have no clue what it does. I have read that some people link it to realtek, some to AMD overdrive, Asus motherboards, and some to it being a virus. Malware bytes doesn't pick it up as a virus, But I'm still worried.

It has no info on the the file version/product name/product version, all its says is the size (32.0 KB). The icon it uses is also a barcode type symbol.

So can i get a yay or nay whether is is safe or not? and what if anything its doing?

(I'm new to this forum, and if i have posted this in the incorrect play I am sorry, and could you direct me to the right place.)

Hello and Welcome to Malwarebytes

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:

  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support


As we don't deal with malware removal in the
General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum
, you need to start a topic in the
Malware Removal forum
so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

    there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer such as (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.
    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.


    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.


Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.
