View Full Version : Unable To Close Program

10-07-2002, 08:34 PM
Hi there,

When I defrag my computer, I close all programs except Explorer & Systray.

However the program Rnaapp closes and then a short time later re - opens. This causes the Defrag program to restart many times and thus increases the length of time to complete it's task.

Can anyone tell me what Rnaapp does?

How do I shut this program down and make it stay down?

rnaapp is the aplication controlling your modem. Normally it is not active unless your are using your modem: ie, on the net. Microsoft messanger is the other applications you mention. There are many programs you can install on your computer that have and "automatically Connect" setting. Many modems also come with software that allow you to use the computer as an answering machine or data/fax. Many dial up ISP's recommend not using this software as it can interfere with your connection. The problem is a "Program" is opening the rnaapp, so you should check to see if any program you know about may be optioned to connect to the net. If you can't track it down...all that's left are these things: 1.You may have "Extra Settings" in the modem properties that are incorrect.( It hurts nothing to take them out). 2.Your modem drivers may be corrupt...uninstall them and then reinstall them. 3. You have spyware on your computer. (go to http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ Download and install AdAware free..It detects and removes spyware). 4. You may have a virus.

I hope I have helped.
