I seem to have recently 'acquired' a program which keeps attempting to dial my internet connection whenever I am offline. I think I have found the program causing it which seems to be webassist/ABCwebassist which was created 10 days ago and found in the windows folder.
I don't seem to be able to delete it, and nothing apparently happens when I connect to the net when it prompts me to. It does however often stuff the computer up when other programs are runing

Download either Spybot Search & Destroy (http://security.kolla.de/index.php?lang=en&page=download) or Ad-aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/) and give them a run.

Download, update and use 2 programs regularly that clean out this type of scumware/spyware.
Spybot (http://download.com.com/3000-2144-10122137.html?part=104443&subj=dlpage&tag=button) and Lavasoft (http://www.tucows.com/preview/236049.html)
