I have an issue which I have seen posted on this site before. I have followed the instructions up to a point where I now require some help interpreting the data.

Basically, in Windows XP, the dialup box keeps appearing when I start the PC, when I dismiss the request it disappears only to reappear a few minutes later and continues to do so.

I have downloaded a copy of HijackThis.exe and the run a scan on the PC as recommended in a previous thread.

Here is a copy of the log that came back.

Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7
Scan saved at 17:37:00, on 27/03/2004
Platform: Windows XP (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 (6.00.2600.0000)

Any help would be much appreciated. And if anyone can enlighten me as to what is actually causing this issue I would be interested to find out.

Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 Remote Access Dialler. This task will appear in your Task List if your PC or Server is currently handling or waiting to handle an incoming modem based connection from a remote user or system (dial-up modem, ISDN, USB ADSL modems). It will also appear if there is software on your system which needs to dial out automatically whenever a particular event occurs and without waiting for user input.

Recommendation :
Leave alone unless you know for certain that your PC/Server has no business waiting for an incoming remote connection, or that it should not have software which dials out automatically. If you find that your PC is connecting automatically via RASAUTOU without reason, then run Spybot from our Downloads library in case you may have adware or spyware which is trying to connect to remote servers.

From reading this it would seem that you have remote access running on your pc..You can thus leave that file alone in system32 then go to start / run and type services.msc then scroll down to remote access, double click it and set to disable then apply.
