    When browsing the net my connection suddenly drops and then reconnects. I am using bt broadband. When I look in networking and dial up folder there is a connection called didi. I keep deleting this but when I browse the net again it reappears. I have done a full system scan using norton but my system is clean. Can someone please help me remove this or stop it from happening. Cheers.

    I would also appreciate some help with this one, I have didi in my network connections folder and although I have searched, I still don't know what it is, and as such wary of it.

    Yes, I knew I had read that twice today. I have requested a log from duffy26, would you do the same? Perhaps it will help narrow it down.

    Download Hijackthis.
    Save it to a folder on your hard drive.
    Unzip the file.
    Scan your machine, then click on Save Log.

    Post a copy back here and someone will be happy to review it.

    Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

    I have traced it back to windows media player. Someone has altered the programs exe file to start this dialler. I have posted the log file in a different post. WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER HACKED.
