Hi guys i have a problem. I use dialup only to have access to the net, and recently something (sorry i dunno the term im not so knowledgeable to computers ) forces my connection to be disconnected and then it dials up a new connection that never connects. It is so annoying so i pressed ctrl + alt + delete then i see some programs running that was not running earlier. Those files are dosxpd.exe , audiossrp.exe and some other .exe i forgot the exact names. So i searched the files in my computer and then i deleted them. And now i cannot open my DOS PROMPT it says "device attached to the system is not functioning". Can u guys help me? I need to run dos prompt for some programs im using

If you can still download go to download.com and DL Spybot S&D, AdAware SE. These are very effective antispyware programs. Also try AVG free edition antivirus. If this fails to remove the problem go to the HiJack This forum on this site. Follow the instruction to the letter and do not modify the log . Post it and one of the HJT Team member will assist you. Go luck.

Does this mean you cannot get on-line? If we get rid the dialer Windows may resume as normal. AVG free edition can also be run from the command prompt (DOS). If you can not download , you will need to find a computer that can. Download the programs mentioned, and burn them to a CD. Then you can run the form the disk. To get to DOS press F8 when booting. When the menu comes up select the COMMAND LINE .

i ran the AdAware SE and it found several files, but when i click next it starts to delete the files but it suddenly freezes for a long time i had to close it. I also ran spybot and did a scan, it found some dialers and i chose to delete them. but still after some time it would dial again.

Turn off system restore. Have you run an To turn on System Restore

Open System properties in Control Panel.
Click the Performance tab, and then click File System.
Click the Troubleshooting tab, and then make sure the Disable System Restore check box is checked.
Notes

Another way to open Control Panel is to click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. If you don't see the item you want, click view all Control Panel options.
System Restore is enabled when you first start your new computer or when Windows Millennium Edition is installed, unless you have less than 200 MB of free space on the hard disk (or partition that contains your Windows System folder).
If you do not have enough free disk space when Windows is installed, then you must turn on System Restore using the steps above, after you have freed up disk space.

i got rid of the dialers now, and the connection is good to go again. unfortunately, my prompt is still not functional, same goes for any of my programs that uses dos. it just says "A device attached to the system is not functioning". I am guessing i may have deleted some important files?
