On BB, you should not worry too much. If you still have a dial up modem, for emergency use only, just unplug it from the phone. After all, you can plug it back in if you need it.

A BB connection to the best of my understanding, can't be re-directed by a dialer.

So i believe.

Dorsai is correct. However, if you reconnect your dial up modem you are at risk.

You need to delete the connection:

Open My Computer on desk top

Open Dial up Networking

Delete the offending dial up networking configurations. Be careful not to delete your Broadband icon.

You should also run Adaware and a2 to scan for offending trojans and get rid of them.
