Dear Forum,

Recently every time I try yo log on my dial-up details have been changed. I have to re-set them manually each time I log on,but the correct details are never saved. I have contacted my ISP and set up a new connection but this also gets changed. Is this a virus, if so AVG does not pick it up, or a problem with XP.

Please advise, Sam.

What -exactly- gets changed?

The number (which indicates a dialler trojan may be present) or the password (which always shows a non-indicative number of dots for security, which is normal) or?

Both, the pass word remains as dots but there are more of them, and the user name keeps the first couple of letters then changes.

Hope this makes more sense to you than me.
