Nope no router. It just trys to dial out. Thought it might be a virus but couldn't find anything, I may end up just deleting the file, can't remove it. Unless there is a better idea.

have you done a search of the registry for it, to make sure is not in a startup key, or checked msconfig to see if it starts up in there

otherwise, just rename it to dialer2.exe or somthing, see what happens

Run Your AntiVirus !

I had a customer the other week with the same problem....i found a worm was infecting his system and was trying to dial out on boot up.....removed the worm and it stopped dialing out.

Check your registry :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

Look if there is something like dialer2.exe or similar that should not be there.

It can also be the case that a program in your windows directory is being started.

Well I did run ad aware, virus scanner before I posted. Checked the registry entries suggested didn't find anything that I don't know about. There is no Dialer.exe 2 or anything like that. It just pops up out of no where I don't reall y have to do anything, as I am typing this it poped up. Any more Ideas?

Check in Control Panel - Date & Time module. Do you have it set to synchronize the system time? If so, that's probably what's dialing out. You can disable it if you like.

Did you do a search for it? It might be packed in some program that you downloaded

Ad-aware wont work for the dialers.

I had the same sort of problem and the thing that fixed it was spybot remove and destroy and can be found here

Hope this helps

Hey guys... don't forget... it is a feature of windows... type "dialer" into the run dialog and see what pops up. That is what he is talking about. Not some porn dialer or spyware thing so the adware/spyware removers won't remove it.

Nope time is not synch. It is a windows program, I have checked everything can't seem to find the problem.

Other possibilities would be NAV (auto update), Windows Critical Update, McAfee products, etc - but those would appear in Task Scheduler.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
