Lizzie, a search on Google turns up over 3000 pages for crescent internet toolpak. It's a suite of developer's tools, and someone is using it to access your site -- who and why is another question.
DNS lookup gave me this: dsl-64-193-154-213.telocity.com

The Crescent Internet Toolpak is a set of tools for Visual Basic that simplifies doing internet connections. Someone has built a tool around that and is running it on your site.

Thanks, I can't imagine why anyone would visit my dumb little site constantly with this. I bought a domain name that had been used previously.

Someone using Crescent Internet ToolPak just made over 2500 requested. Can I ban it from my site in the htaccess and is it a good idea? If so, how should it be written?

Sure Jd, you can ban them easy enough. No ill or adverse effects. Nothing to it. One line:
deny from 18.104.22.168

Thx Mr. Tabke
What is the general profile of the users of Crescent Internet ToolPak HTTP OLE Control v.1.0? i.e. Spammers, surfers, anything or anyone constructive. Is there any reason I should not ban the UA?

Being that it is a toolpack for VB, its probably script kiddies or bad programmers (I dislike VB).

Visual Basic JD, a Microsoft programming language, used most often to produce windows user interfaces, a WPG like tool could be written with VB and the Toolpak for example. Very unlikely that this visitor is doing anything that is useful to your site. Highly probable that it's safe to ban.
