I came to know that a dailer connects to internet through very expensive numbers without user persmission.

How can I know that my computer is not dailed through one of them.

I use dsl modem and have windows xp.

If you think you have malware on your computer, use the programs below. Let us know what they find. DSL does not use a dialup connection but you still could have the malware on your computer.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
