Keep pn getting the following message on my screen: Virus Trojan horse Dialer.14BE is found in file C:\System Volume Information\_restore{E4309F2D-6EA2-4D96-CEC9BE642BBF}\RP582\A0321796.dll and am advised to run AVG. I have done this several times, but the message keeps appearing. I am on BB and wonder whether the dialer can do any harm to my phonebill.

Turn off system restore,right click my computer,select properties,restore tick the box
then re run scan,if it doesnt shift it you may need to start in safe mode ,by pressing F5 or F8
at boot,when donr re enable system restore.It is very doubtfull that the dialer will use BB,byt if you have a dial up modem attached it may use that,best to clean it.

Thanks Acolyte. Followed your instructions and so far so good...also relieved that the virus can't do too much without a modem.
