Tracing dialers

  Meshuga 18:41 13 Nov 2003

I am using Win ME and when running a scan on
adaware or spybot I see mention of a number of
different dialers as the scan procedes. When I
search for these to remove them, using either
Start-search or Start-run-regedit-find, I am told none found. Has anyone any ideas as to how I can
find and dispose of them, if in fact they exist.
I only see them as the scan scrolls through them,
they do not show on the final check to be deleted.

If you refer to the progess bar at the bottom of the Spybot screen, it refers to the item it is looking for, not the ones found.those found will only show with the final results screen . Does that ease your mind ?

same as muppetmark

spybot will also list dialers in its progress bar while its searching but unless they show up on the final found screen you should not worry.

Yeh as these two have said its nothing to qorry about as this is only a scare when it actually pops up on the results!

Many thanks to Huggyg71,muppetmark and Proxy Worm.
My mind is easier now. I thought I`d picked up a load of dialers. Regards, Meshuga.
