The Device Manager can be found in Windows Control Panel under Hardware and Sound/Devices and Printers/Device Manager. The driver facilitates access to your computer's hardware and accessories. It is the gateway for remote access to internet connection like dialing an internet connection. The Windows operating system requires this file.

Why do you have aspppoe.sys errors?

Raspppoe.sys appears to be a file that was compressed by an EXE-Packer. This technique is often used by Trojans to keep the file size small and also hamper debugging efforts. However, this in itself is not sufficient reason to presume malicious intent, since even well-intentioned, professional software producers take advantage of compressed files.

If you see this file on your hard drive or in Windows Task Manager, please make sure that it is not a malicious variant. It's a fact that many Trojans try to cloak their true identity by calling themselves raspppoe.sys. Raspppoe.sys can also get infected by the ZeroAccess rootkit as a part of its infection routine.
