This might be the I-Worm Opas trojan which is currently active and has some difficult to remove components.

Post back what AVG says is there and also which Windows version that you're using.

Also, have a look in your Windows folder for any of the following files and post back if any of them are there:-

Alevir, Brasil, Marco, Srv, Scrsvr.

I am useing windows ME and AVG is showing the trojen horse dialer as Restore\Temp\A0122550.CPY

You need to disable System Restore click here then run AVG again, then re-enable System Restore.

NOTE: This will erase all of your existing restore points.

That's one I don't personally know. Try Trend's online scan servive by going to this link and running it. It should detect it and give you the information that you need to get rid of it:-

If their virus information doesn't help, go to Symantec's (Norton) site and have a look at the removal information they give for that trojan:-

Sorry, crossed posting.

Sak41, unfortunately some of these trojans leave behind the registry/Scanreg.ini/Msconfig entries that trigger the dial up even after the trojan is removed, but hopefully those sites will give the necessary information.

If not, and you've removed the trojan but are still getting the dial up, post back for further information on how to stop it.
