I recently ran a Norton scan that identified Dialer.generic as a threat. The scan refered me to the website, which basically said locate and delete the file. I cannot locate the file and cannot therefore delete it.

I went on a live chat on Norton and the technician asked me to allow him to dial into the PC which I'm not happy with.

How do I remove this threat. I'm using Windows XP on a PC about 12 months old

I have followed the "Must read this" and have been declared clean by AVG and SUPERantispyware. I got the following report from Panda though


Incident Status Location

Spyware:Cookie/Overture Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Cookies\[email protected][1].txt
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Desktop\Data Files\smitRem\Process.exe
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\Desktop\Data Files\smitRem.exe[smitRem/Process.exe]
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/KillApp.B Not disinfected C:\hp\bin\KillIt.exe
How do I remove these before continuing with the XP updates?

Just run Panda again and got an increase.
