Dialer HC trojan reported even after removal

I use PC Guard as part of my Virgin Media broadband package. After a recent scan, Dialer HC was reported, quarantined and removed. After the next scan it was there again and re-appears after every scan.
I have also scanned with AdAware, Kaspersky online, and Xsoft. These report no infections every time, but PCGuard still reports Dialer HC in the registry at hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\internetsettings\zonemap\domains\sgrunt.biz.

Is it a false report? How do I get rid of it?

navigate to the registry entry and delete it. make a backup of it first though

Switch off system restore
scan and delete

switch restore back on
rescan to check trojan is gone.

Ditch PCGuard and use Avast or AVG instead.click here
