    Hi, I am still having a problem trying to get rid of a file dealing with Dialer.one0none. The only time this shows up is when running Norton Anti Virus scan, as being in c:/windows/downloaded program files\109554.exe. I cannot delete it using NAV. When searching for this file, it is no where to be found.
    My question is this, Can I delete the entire contents of the c:/windows/downloaded program files? Maybe this would get rid of it.
    I am running Windows XP Home ed. I am on cable and do not have my phone connected to the computer. There don't seem to be any problems other than this keeps coming up on my virus scan as a threat and when I try to delete it, it fails. I have tried the Safe Mode way, also have submitted a HJT Log earlier. I just need to know if the c:/windows/downloaded program files is needed. Thanks for your help. Roger
