Most probably downloaded accidently or a pop up; popped up asking for it to install itself.

These programs:

Adaware click here and spybot click here should find and be able to delete sucj nasties.

Somebody might if you name them.

  powerless 22:57 17 Aug 03

Or even your AV can delete them ;-) as its a trojan.

Oh, and BTW I had one, called, I think Live Now and neither Adaware or Spy Bot found it but AVG did.

MY Anti-Virus has dealt with them.But I still don't know what they do ?

If you have Broadband and have disabled your dial up connection they won't do anything BUT if you are on Dial-up they will attempt to dial an (expensive) premium rate number without your knowledge.

Shite!So could I recieve a large phone bill for someone else's premium rate internet usage ?

Yup! These diallers sometimes connect to *ahem* adult sites but there are ones that connect to your ISP but through their £1.50+/min premium numbers. there have been instances of eye-watering bills. Generally you have to accept an exe. file for these diallers to be installed. Motto....open nothing nor agree to nothing unless you are 100% sure.

No, it won't be someone else's ussage it will be your Phone that dialled out. You'll find out when you get the bill.

jakedawe,are you saying that someone must have accessed these sites from my daughters PC?I.e. someone in our home ?Or has someone used my phone number to access this material on there own PC somewherelse ???
