BT says it wants £40 for premium rate calls via my dial-up connection. A Dailer virus (same number) seems to have infected my PC - just one day it seems when I was saving pictures to 'My Pictures' from a 'Cher' website.

AVG never indicated a Virus/Throjan... nor was any highlighted and removed, but good old BT now say they have barred 'that' dailer number.

Is there a way I can detect a 'dailer' once on my PC if a scan fails to highlight one?

Cheers guys.... EOS.

Download DC+ (Dialler Controll). It's a German Programme but it works well. Once run each time anything attempts to access the net it checks it's database, which you control. If it finds a number it doesn't recognise it asks what to do before allowing it to dial. Options are. Always allow this number, Always deny, alow this time only, or deny this time only.

You'll find it on Google.

AVG looks for virus not dialers / spyware

Try Anti Spyware :-
