There have been a number of "I can't download" postings where DAP was implicated.

It's on my "bad list".

What is DAP.exe? Is it something that an WP system is supposed to have or not?

It's a software/program. Download Accelerator Plus from http://www.speedbit.com/
A download manager. The freeware version gives ads that is why it is called Adware.

I know that adware is bad. So is the program that you listed a good program to have? Obviously I haven't heard of this before and am quite niave.

Download Accelerator Plus contains a high risk worm called "Worm.Win32.Sdbot.gen"

Don't download this product.

DAP used to have a problem or two when I used it about 2 years ago. Have been using FreshDownload since then, with no problems at all.
But, an AD supported program is not necessarily bad. Far as I know, the free version of Opera is still ad supported, and though I don't use it much anymore, never had a problem with it.
