Was in the forum yesterday asking for advice about a problem with my ME shutting down and starting up properly. Was given Microsoft site for trouble shooting ME shut down problems. The MS site indicated one of the things that can create this problem is "incompatible,damaged, or conflicting device drivers". Found "dialler.exe" in my computer. Dialler.exe appears to be manufactured by Supra ( Driver no. SST56iPRODF) and is described as a modem driver. I know that "Dialler.exe" is not supposed to be in my system and think maybe that it is creating my start up and shut down problems. How do I get rid of it safely without creating different problems for my system. I also ran accross something called "hollycelebs.exe" which seems to be somehow associated with "dialler.exe".After scanning with "As-aware" and a fix, I can't seem to find it anymore when I search.

Any advice on removing "dialler.exe" safely much appreciated. I'm not very knowledgeable about computers so any advice needs to be pretty direct.

Thanks in advance for any directions offered.

Currently running ME with all updates, Spybot, Ad-Aware,Diskeeper Spywareblaster,Norton SystemWorks and Spywareguard all installed after all the garbage got into my computer. Attaching a Hijackthis log taken after Spybot and Ad-aware run.

buckaroo,

Thanks for your response. Deleted both dialler.exe and hollycelebs.exe without any adverse effects so far. Will hold onto them in Norton Protected files for a bit just in case. Start up and Shutdown working better but still acting up a bit--Nothing like it was before. I'll keep poking around to see if there's anything else in my machine that could be interfering.

Thanks so much for your help.

Just to confirm, dialler.exe (spelt with two "l's) is a porn dialer, and hollycelebs a porn site. Add the two together = extra charges to your phone bill. A dialer will redirect your phone connection to another number, nearly always a rip-off premium rate number - without you realising. Check and see if you have a dload.exe on your system as well - and remove it if you find it.
