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.

Best practices for resolving DAODx issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with DAODx. 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. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
