Default dial/siteIcon-A (porn dialler)

Sophos anti-virus has detected this on my PC. Its a porn dialler. I am on broadband so I know no calls can be made via dial-up and be on my phone bill, but can calls be made and charged to my broadband account? There is no way of checking mid-month as I have asked NTL.
Any ideas how this made its way into my PC?

I also have trojan inor/d which is proving difficult to remove.

Any advice would be welcome.

TIA
Rizzo

Porn.....porn site? mabey

the program is probably running in the background of your computer so to get rid of it....

1) restart the computer into safe mode (press F8 on startup)

2) run the program to remove the "pron dialer"

this should work only if you told me every thing

You don't need to dial to get the dialer - you've been on a Porn Site which wants you to dial; you've uploaded the Active X Controls and now you have the dialer. If you don't want it - delete it.
