Posted 07 October 2005 - 04:04 AM

I have run various anti-spy checks including spy-bot and ad-aware and at least two on-line checks. I have Norton anti-virus installed and also use Pest Patrol. I have a Fuji modem which I bought about 4 years ago and I have a Broadband Connection (with CharityDays over a BT line)

I have the common problem in that some program or file is starting up rasatou.exe which causes my Internet Connection to go down. This happens after about 4 - 5 minutes after connection. Ironically the problem seems to have got worse having done the various checks! It use to happen at fairly random intervals often as far apart as one to two days (I sometimes connect for 2-4 days if I have a big download)

I have run HijackThis twice now (without deleting anything) and am pasting the second file. The only line that does not appear inthe second list but occurred in the first list is:


I hope that you might be able to help by examining the pasted list and offering advice about what might be deleted and/or any other advice.

Thanks in advance for this.

Hello robinsmith375 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. After reviewing the HijackThis log I see no signs of viruses or malware at this time. The log is clean.

In regards to rasatou.exe, it is a legitimate MS application that many ISP's use for network connection. If you have a broadband connection then rasatou.exe would only be used if the broadband connection is down and you had to connect through dialup. Check the IE settings in Control Panel->Connections tab and make sure that Never dial a connection is set so that the rasatou.exe will only attempt to dial out if you manually choose to use a dialup connection.

As for wuauclt.exe, it is used for automatic updates and will not always be active. You will see it if the computer is checking for updates, otherwise it will not be present.

There is 1 item that we can clean out for the sake of housekeeping.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page_bak = about:blank
Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Other than that, you are all set.


I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.

Thx for the welcoming note and advice OT.

I did as you suggested but unfortunately the problem still remains.

I would therefore speculate that I have a faulty modem.

Thx again for your help.
