Dial-up hijacker

  1. Can someone help?

    My dial-up connection becomes dis-enabled and a hi-jacker dials a premium rate phone number every time I go online. Thankfully I have premium rate numbers blocked from my phone-line, but this is still a real problem. The phone company is called 'Global Access S.L.' I know this from the properties on the pornographic type icon on my desktop, called "Access members area." I can honestly say that I don't know how it got there, although I am not the only person who uses this computer...

    I have used the "HijackThis" version v1.99.1 to create a log file, which is attached to this message saved as a txt file. A spyware expert may know what to do?

    Many thanks,

    Thank you, Dial-Up Hijacker removed

    Thank you for replying to my post about removing the Global Access S.L. dial-up hijacker. The first few clean up programs that I tried did not rid me of the problem, namely Ad-Aware, CrapCleaner, and Spyaudit1. The link that eventually did remove the problem was the 'Ewido Security Suite,' and this was a free downlaod too. My internet is now quicker and cleaner than it's ever been as a result.

    I hope this post may be helpful for anyone who suffers from the same dial-up hijacker.
