A friends computers dialup connection has be taken over by a dialup called happy with takes you to a porn site called zirvelist.com, i have tried deleting the connection in the normal way, but on the restart hey presto its back again. if you try to use the default dialup it tells you another programme is using it, is their a way to remove it without wiping the computer?

Many thanks

A friends computers dialup connection has be taken over by a dialup called happy with takes you to a porn site called zirvelist.com, i have tried deleting the connection in the normal way, ie through connections and at the dialup screen but on the restart hey presto its back again. if you try to use the default dialup it tells you another programme is using its connection, is their a way to remove it without wiping the computer? another issue it has deleted all the history, and the sethome page option in internet tools is greyed out so you cannot reset the home page, plus in the dialup properties no phone number. Many thanks Tonynonpc
