I got a problem with my dial up networking.While trying to connect to the ISP ,
use name 'aniln9.102.1251' and the phone number (006857710069), which is unknown to me.
 But i can always change the user name .
But first time when it happened ,If i change something it asked me"
do u want to make changes permanant" and if i click yes ,then some
dumps and blue screen appears before restarting.
Then i removed 10d43a.dll(not sure whether it was the exact reason) from my temp folder in Windows and deleted Local settings'  temp and temporary Internet files Folders.
Could you help me to resolve this problem? I've tried to remove it, but it appears continually to disturb my dial up connection.I think it's virus or spyware infection.
OS used- Windows XP professional
thanking u in advance

It is very important you remove this - there is a scam going on whereby user's machines get their dial-up connections rewritten by viruses so that they call premium rate, £1.50 per minute numbers.

You should be able to remove this with up-to-date AV software.
