Hi.

This is something that I just want to query.

My teenagers visit all kinds of web sites and sometime unknown to them a dialer and other rubbish is installed.

Having said that. I wondered if they had ever clicked on these things and then I got to wondering if they actually work because we are using ADSL via a netgear Modem/Router.

Could they actually work?????

provided you unplug the old analogue modem line from the back of the computer, it will not work. diallers need an analogue connection, they will not do any harm (except eat up resources) through an adsl or cable connection

Thanks for the article Lionheart. At least I can tell the kids I'll shift em when I get home (dialers) and the modem lives in a cardboard box in the loft. I use an ordinary fax machine.

Thanks again
