Hi,

is there a way to effectively get rid of the dialers from my computer. They stick in my favourites and cant be deleted.

following:
100s of Porn Links, All Categories!!!
Adult Dating
Search the Web for everything on one click!
Spywear remover (clean your computer)

Somehow managed to get virused the other day.

Cheers,
Dino

P.s. sensible firewall also appreciated

would suggest running Ad-Aware and Spybot....these will hopefully get rid of all if not most of these....check the registry under HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run and HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run and delete any keys that are not necessary.  As for a firewall....if you are looking for software I recommend Kerio firewall.
