    ExDialer

    I keep getting logged out of the internet due to a program called
    "ExDialer" which keeps appearing in Dial up Networking whilst l
    am on-line. As it in turn tries to dial another number in
    therefore cuts of my in internet connection.

    How could l go about resolving this issue?.

    Start RegEdit, and navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionRun. Look in the right hand pane. Delete all entries containing "dialer" and/or "winh.exe" and/or "r.reg".

    Do the same for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersionRun.

    Notes:
    If you're using Windows NT, you may have to substitute WinNT or Windows NT for Windows in the paths mentioned above.
    The usual warnings about editing the registry apply.

    Also see if there is a file named r.reg in C:; if so, delete it.

    You might look at the Startup folders used by Windows to see if there is anything suspicious in there. Look for folders
    C:...Start MenuProgramsStartup
    The exact location depends on your Windows version. On Windows XP, the relevant ones are
    Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsStartup
    and
    Cocuments and Settings<your username>Start MenuProgramsStartup

    Run a search on all your drives and see if you can find a file called d.exe (it may be in a Temp folder). A wade through various other forums points to it being the likely culprit.

    I think that's a fake error message. For one thing, the path separator is backwards (/ rather than ). You could visit the site of your favorite antivirus vendor and search for that message and see if it indicates a particular virus/trojan, etc.
