    I believe you mean "cidaemon.exe" - The following information should be useful (And, yes, you should allow it):

    cidaemon - cidaemon.exe - Process Information

    Process File: cidaemon or cidaemon.exe

    Process Name: Microsoft Indexing Service


    cidaemon.exe is an indexing service which catalogues files on your computer to enable for faster file searches.
