    Exclamation I have a dialer!!!

    hi all,

    I'm really worried at the moment. I have a dialer. Last night I was searching and downloaded something which then automatically started calling some one. I pulled my internet cord out, so the full dial couldn't be made. I shut my computer down and came back on today to find that my default internet connections had been changed to some different dial up number. I deleted it, and replaced it with mine, but then if I reboot, it happens again.

    I have downloaded spybot, ad-aware, Hijack this AND spyware blaster, and it seems like ive deleted everything I can, but then when I re-did my spybot scan, at the bottom I saw all these "XX dialer" "tango dialer" "ring ring" etc. type of things, but yet spybot says "congratulations! No immediate threats were found."

    I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! And I am freaking out. Please please help me!!!!

    Worried.

    When you see those things flash by next to Running botcheck at the bottom of spybot during a scan,it doesn't mean those things are on your computer,it's just what spybot is checking for.

    As correctly suggested by Zenobia.

    A reminder to all re: Platform: Windows XP (WinNT 5.01.2600)
    MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 (6.00.2600.0000)

    Have you updated Windows? Security Programs? Links and Tips.

    worried, I will ask Lonny to take a look at your log as soon as possible.

    Hang in there.
