File purpose and description:
DAMon.exe is a software program which was most likely arrived on your computer as preinstalled software. The correct file and folder location is also listed below, and should always be verified as spyware and virus writers will often use the same named file or like named files and just locate them elsewhere in attempts to fool you. This DAMon.exe file is a software program from Dell. If you purchased a Dell computer, you may most likely find this in your startup. This should only be found on Dell computers however and it is part of their support software. This file is considered safe and is not virus, spyware, or adware related software. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

File or folder location:

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, damon.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of damon.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
