Diallers?

Postby dan » Wed Jun 23, 2004 6:43 pm

My dad's PC has been infected with some kind of dialler software, which keeps trying to dial a premium rate number. He's tried a program called Ad-Aware, but didn't get any joy.

I have no idea - anybody offer a suggestion? What is it, and how can it be got rid of?

You could try the even better program (although I use a combination of both) called SpyBot Search & Destroy?

Failing that I'm sure some other peeps here have an idea on some useful apps?

I heartily recommend Pest Patrol. It's kept me 99.99% free of spyware, and there are frequent updates.
