I have just been informed by BT that a virus has been dialling international when I have been online. I now have a huge bill. Im stunned, how do they do it and how do they get away with it. Im told I have to pay, can I appeal to anyone?? how do you deter this scum?

thanks

Spybot click here is better at detecting Diallers.

SpywareBlaster click here can prevent them in the first place

Also install a firewall to control whats dialling out click here

Make sure you run up to date Anti virus click here

Be careful where you or anyone on your PC surfs to. Don't say Yes to any downloads unless you know whats it is.
