Thread: Dialer program

  1. #1

    Default Dialer program


    Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to get infected by these dialer programs from an embedded picture in and E-mail. I got sent and E-mail that turned out to be spam but before I realised it I had opened it and it contained a pornographic picture. Now I'm worried if I might have been infected by one of there dialers as I'm terrified of getting one.

    run an anti virus and spyware removal tool (check the FAQs)

    as for the dialer.........
    1) open "my computer"
    2) open "dialup networking"

    3) see if you have any dial up conections other than the one for your ISP.
    4) if you do then deleate it.

    Try not to get paranoid, but rather very careful. These things happen and it pays to have a few tools available to calm those fears.

    AntiVirus program
    Spybot search&destroy

    Update them and run them.

    Also, I would recommend a program called SpywareBlaster. It's like an innoculation against Internet Explorer hijacks amoungst others.

    The only problem found is that they may remove some Kazaa files ,which stop it working.
