    For dial-up users.

    Free protection from dial-up fraud when you connect to the internet.

    "When you're connected to the Internet with your dial-up connection, problems can occur if you unknowingly download an Internet 'dialler', which changes the way that you connect to the Internet.

    This could result in your dial-up number being changed to an international, premium or another national rate number (e.g 0871), giving you higher than average phone bills.

    BT Privacy Online will help protect your computer from such scams while you are using your dial-up connection. It gives you:
    Modem Protection software to help keep your modem safe from malicious Internet 'diallers'
    SMS alerts to let you know if there has been any unusual activity on your account

    And what's more it's FREE."

    From what I've heard that anti-dialer your mentioning is only for those who are subscribed customers to BT. It won't work with other dialup services. Though I've never tested it myself, so I can't say for certain.

    MSAS also has an anti-dialer. I have no idea which is better though.

    Kaspersky, NOD32 and pretty much every other AV product which detects more than just viruses and trojans will detect dialers. ;)
