daodx.exe keeps kicking me to desktop or unclicking, whether it be in a game or on the net. so everytime i boot up i end the process and my comp is fine but if i dont the problem will stay
I have an Asus MB and this file is shown in Process Explorer with the remark "error opening process" Its "private bytes" is 2440 K, working set 1540K
It appeared on my computer in the processes tab of the windows task manager at the same time I got hit by a Trojan. I was having problems clicking stuff on desktop. Once I ended the process computer seems to work OK.
