Man of Steel..... if your brother is on Broadband he does not have to worry about a Dialer.
If unsure about the dialer,run this to check. click here

Running his AV and some antispyware programs may be a good start also.

Maybe starting with a free online AV scan click here

Then Ewido click here

Spybot and Adaware click here
a-squared click here

All these are free,if your brother has a problem,i would expect one of these to pick it up.

"if your brother is on Broadband he does not have to worry about a Dialer."

On the condition that any dial up modem is also disconnected.
