Premium rate dialer Icon I can't remove

  breni 09:21 29 Jun 04

A preium rate dialer Icon appeared on my desktop I have run adaware but it's still there.When I rigth click and go to properties and click Find Target.. under System 32 an icon called RUNDLL32 is highlighted which I guess is the offending icon program? I tried to delete it but an error messgae'The file c\windows\system32\rundll32exe' is protected and can not be selected.

Any ideas
ps i'm on broad band and now fear that I will have been charged preium rate calls for the time I been logged on ,would this be so?

Does this only effect modem's or are broadband users liable to high phone bills as well.

Should I disable my system restore before I run one of these A2 type programmes and if so can some one direct me to a thread that shows me how to do it.
My OS is XP

Premium dialers will not affect Bb users assumiong that they have not kept their old modem connected.

If a dialler tries to activate a still-connected dial-up modem, won't the user hear the beeps and hisses? Or can the diallers mute the modem sound?
