Hello everyone :thumbsup:
So every morning,i go to bleeping computer then i coudnt access your website..so my first thought was maybe the internet connection is just joking me so i went to other sites and tested if i can go there but all of them were all unavailable so i scanned my computer with everything i had (Ad-Aware,Pc-cillin,SUPERAntiSpyware,etc.) sudenlly,Trend Micro told me this file and warns me about this so called file called "DIAL PLUG-IN AB" which was currently on firefox cache I then decided to go there and delete the file.. so why did it hinder me to go to websites? and if theres any other way or method to protect yourself against this type of threat i'd also like to know if theres any damage that has been done over my computer

Hi CG..Simply deleting that particular file would not do the trick. I saw you already used trendmicro

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.

1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

I would suggest bitdefender and pandasoftware. Do you have a cleaner `on board `like Ccleaner run that

alternatively do the following :

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:

* Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
* Under Browsing History, click "Delete".
* Click "Delete Files", "Delete cookies" and "Delete history"
* Click Close below.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):

* Go to Tools > Options.
* Click Privacy in the menu..
* Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
* Select all and click the Clear button again.
* Click OK to close the Options window

* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin

* Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
* Let it scan your system for files to remove.
* Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
* Press OK to remove them.

Who is you ISP? The file might have been a part of its connexion programme.
