If one is concerned about getting a Dialler on their PC enough then they can contact their line provider eg. BT and have premium rate phone calls barred from their line.

I use Panda Platinum Anti Virus & Firewall and the latter can be set to detect and remove unwelcome dialler invaders ! It does work as one was picked up and disinfected yesterday !

I have used andy68's suggestion and it has worked fine for me and has warned of possible interference.
