Greetings,

PropagandaPanda referred me here, from the Malware removal forum, this thread: /topic188998.

I have something calling Rasautou.exe (as reported by Proventia events log). It happens after a reboot, or login. I can't catch the process calling it with process explorer. Panda requested the HJT uninstall list be attached, it is.

SInce Rasautou is a modem thing, and I don't use dialup (no phone line connected), and no fax software is running on the computer, I'm kinda puzzled. I did a search of all files for COM or FAX, and got two log file I can't explain, or identify what they're from. Since I installed home use versions of Proventia and McAfee, and they use our company produced installers, that might be a good suspect? I can attache the log files if necessary

Any help much appreciated.
DP.
Edit- it was supposed to be attached, anyway... text copied below:

It looks like it's something that's part of Windows whether you need it or not. Maybe this link will help.
