Well. It didn't hurt to ask since you did great. :tazz:

One more thing to clean (the dialer itself)

Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HELPER] C:\WINDOWS\system32\south_africa.exe -N

Reboot into safe mode and delete:

That should do it, but post a new log so we can check.
