My PC is hijacked by SurfYa.com

Hi,hope someone can help!
A program called SurfYa.com is now on my PC(through my own stupidity!), and I can't get rid of it. It sits in the Start up menu, and it also comes with it's own uninstaller, which is useless, as it re-appears when I re-start the computer. The path for the app is: C:\WINDOWS\system32\temp532.exe -S.

Also, since this showed up yesterday an automatic dialler is trying to connect to the internet and wants to establish itself as my default dial-up connection. I am unable to find out which program this is.

I really don't want all this s*** on my PC, so does anyone know how to get rid of it?

PS. I have tried to scan my PC with Ad Aware, Spybot and Norton Antivirus without luck. I also have Zone Alarm installed and active.

Very grateful for any help.

Thx, Slayer
I'll download the free trial and see it it does the trick. I just found that SurfYa provides internet access through dial-up connection and tried the uninstaller provided on their website, but it still persists.

Appreciate your help, Slayer..

Have run A2 and rebooted. Although SurfYa seems to be gone, I am still prompted to connect via dial-up.Any ideas on what the reason could be?

Have a look in your network connections is there a new connection there if there is delete it

go to start = run - msconfig and then the startup tab. I take the tick out of all the boxes except avg and zone alarm

Thx Completealias and Howard60.
I'll try your advice and see what happens. I'll have to restart my PC, so will let you know.
