What is Dialler.Generic?

  Snrub 22:35 05 Mar 2008

My computer has been infected with a virus despite having an up to date AVG Virus Program running.

Running an AVG check reveals 'no virus found' however, running a Symantec Norton check shows :-
C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\BTmailcontrol.dll is infected with Dialer.Generic

Can anyone please advise how to get rid of this problem?

If you are on broad band it cannot do anything. it's just a case of deleting it

Dialer.Generic. Uses a Modem to dial Premium rate numbers

This to my knowledge only affects Dial-Up modems not broadband

I think BTmailcontrol.dll is more likely be associated with your broadband provider (BT?) and should not be removed. Could be just a false alarm from Symantec.
