dialup-XXXServer-country-Spain34- what is this?

  blackmischief 18:51 21 Feb 2004

one of my connections uses this dial-up, is this normal or is it one of those dodgy diallers I`ve heard about,-re-routing my connection via Spain?
Maybe the AOL server connects european users thru
When I need to look up my Aol connection properties nothing happens , i have to double-click on the XXXServer to see the aol details
cant I delete it. Also can i delete any connection dial-up that I am not using ?

get the various security anti spyware being suggested in these forums and run updated scans which should pick it up for you.

if you dont know xxx usually refers to a dialer that connects you to a porn site at pounds per minute.sometimes you can pick these up by dowloading them when you think its something else.is there an entry for it in the add remove programs ? darren

I would try to delete it from your dial-up list and see what happens, I bet you it comes straight back again.

Try as many different anti-spyware applications as you can get your hands on untill you get rid of it.

Make sure you update them first.
