a pop up called moldconecta????

  woodkitten 02:07 07 May 2004

i have from time to time been getting this pop up from moldconecta it is in a grey box with a computer in the pic, asking for me to accept or not by means of clicking the box, it will then connect to a premium number, i try to get rid but it is hard, eventually it does clear but i am not happy with this it also says you have to be over 18 use,i have done a search on my machine but nothing has been downloaded in that name as the box is sim, to that you see after you have downloaded a program. I have zone alarm set at the highest setting for the internet and have done some checks to see if i am safe and all seems very good i also have AOL POP UP STOPPER+ YAHOO POP SWOT ANY IDEAS AS TO HOW IT IS GETTING THROUGH, WHAT IT IS ETC,

It's called a dialler and is easy to get rid of, download Ad-Aware from click here and Spybot S&D from click here

Update them and run them.

You should then have no more problems with it.

Also d/l Spyware Blaster to stop things installing in the first place. click here

Also (re your other posting) when you hit a hyperlink offline dont allow your PC to automatically dial up.

You should then be able to see the phone no. of your ISP before you hit the dial up button.
