Possible Dialler/Hijacker on Laptop

  Press Man 18:49 24 Nov 2004

Hi Guys,

On my sons laptop an invisible icon appears in the system tray? When the mouse curser is pointed at it, it says "Instant Access". When I looked in msconfig / startup, its there and reads as follows: "rundll32.exe p2esocks_1026.dll, Instant Access". I believe this is some kind of dialler. I have run spy-bot & ad-aware but it has not been found? Can anybody tell me if this a threat, should it be removed and how?
Thanks in advance of your help
