i have removed the program behind the dialer (porn crap) *in Windows folder* but it still keeps doing it...i just formatted too, please help me, no more formatting.
If it's not in 'add/remove programs' (in control panel), it might require using the system configuration utility. type 'msconfig' in your Run box (in the start menu) and go to the services or startup tabs, and deselect the program (if you can work out which one it is). Don't mess with the stuff in the system configuration utility too much unless you know what your doing.
Might help; i used this method to get rid of a porn site that kept coming back as a desktop wallpaper once...
But be careful; i take no responsibility for something going wrong, and i'm by far no expert!
