:thumbsup: NAV 2004 has found two dialer threats on my system and they say delete failed. They give me a location. How do I get rid of them? Is there a particular program that would get rid of them? I have Ad-aware, Spybot, Spy Blaster, SpywareGuard, ZA Firewall. I am debating whether to download IE-Spyad but being that it affects the registry I am wondering how much manual work I will have to do to set it up since I am not sure about working with registry and I don't want to foul it up. Nine hundred numbers are blocked on my phone lines.

Run these two free antivirus scanners and see what they find:

Please elaborate. They are talking viruses and I am talking dialers.

Do I have to close NAV 2004 in order to run these? How do I close it?

You do not have to close NAV to run those two online scans and though the files are considered dialers, the two scanners may pick it up as well as other items.
