    Recently found a dialer on my computer, dialing the number 002463472653 with the username david6.165.3840.
    I've tried to remove it with Spybot and Adaware but no luck. Can someone give me a hand?

    Can't you just delete the exe for it?

    Antivirus should find it...

    If you could give us a little more information we might be able to help a little more. (Name, Version, What tells you its there, how you see the name and number etc etc)

    It overwrites all of my connections with that number. So if I click on the link I have to dial up to my isp it will come up with this information instead. If I then rewrite the proper info into the number dialed and username it works untill I reset my computer and then it rewrites the info into it.
    I've tried it with McAfree and Norton but no luck.

    Go get HijackThis and run it (PLEASE close all programs that you have running BEFORE you run it...) Post the results.
