Hi need a little help. My computer trys to dial out every 15 or 20 minutes. I think I'm safe (cable). But my norton surcurity program does pick it up. I have been encountering a whole heap of trouble lately like

1. zlob trojan. 2. spyware quake 3. trojan puper 4. the spyguard 5 dialer trojan.

I have followed the info on you majestic page and believe I have fixed the others but my p.c keeps trying to dial out. Heres as break down of what happends.
I come online, p.c runs really really slow, cpu 100% for about 10 /15 minutes. the slightest task (like play music) cpu 100% continuous pop ups saying = remote something is trying to connect to your computer .. allow always recommended. i always block.. then i hear my p.c trying to connect somehow. Icon appears in bottom left corner . i right click and exit but it keeps trying a couple more times then stops only to retry later.

Im on the verge of putting master dvd in for some clarity..

Eags.. :thumbsup:

Hello EAGS

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? If not, start here:

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users
alternate site
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe to install and use the default settings for installation.
  • Run SUPERAntiSypware and update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Udates".
  • When done, select "Scan for Harmful Software".
  • There are three scanning options available. Choose "Perform Complete Scan" and click "Next".
  • When done, a Scan Summary will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Place a checkmark next to items you wish to remove/quarantine and Click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • Select close to exit the program.
Note: If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Note: If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware). Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions.

Then perform this online Virus scan:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
