Aol just alerted me to a trojan dialler detected on my pc, which it classed as a security threat, and gave me the option to block it which I did. Afterwards, aol disconnected and would not redial. However, after re booting my pc, all seems well...should I be unduly worried, and how come only aol picked up on this when I have all the above spyware running?

have you actually run a2?

Yes.

if your computer is booting and running ok then don't worry aol blocked the trojan at source before anything else had chance to detect it
