removal of spyware threat

  crespo 01:35 15 Feb 2006

Hi! This is Crespo calling! During a weekly Norton anti-virus scan, it reported back of a spyware risk - a dialer. It said to go to Symantec's website & remove the threat.It appears i haven't actually installed this rogue dialer. Anyway the Symantec site doesn't actually tell me how to remove this spyware.I don't fancy being hooked up to a premium phone line to Brazil or whatever! So,any help or advice from anyone would be v.appreciated. Cheers! C.

Try spybot / adaware - these work for me. You can get the downloads from Computeractives site under "downloads"
