unable to remove Haldex Dialler

  RussWoo 15:05 14 Oct 2003

I got Haldex dialler on my machine from visiting an adult site. Whilst this is not my default dialler and I am not logging on with massive phone charges, the thing itself is still lurking and is installed and stuck steadfastly and I cannot uninstall it. The dialler is not a virus but a nuisance all the same. I cannot understand Symantec's removal instructions which include dabbling in my registry, and neither Ad-aware nor spybot will pick it up and remove it? Any ideas please? Thanks

Or boot into safemode, search/find 'dial.exe' (usually found in win32 folder) and delete any files.

Thanks, Keenan, yes I am using Windows XP and the system retore worked a treat. Really chuffed.
