    I am getting a Spywareguard warning. The following file www.coulomb.co.uk/dialdemo/dialler.exe is trying to download. Do you want to continue yes or no? I say no and the keyboard lockups up for a while.

    What file is being activated by Spywareguide to cause this warning to come up followed by the keyboard lockup? I can't seem to clean the file that is causing this activation.

    My problem is I appear to have a 'control' executable file on my pc (not the dialer) that can be activated on most web pages trying to download a dialer from 'coulomb'. I have run Lavasoft AD and Spybot plus PestPatrol to clean my system best I could. I don't seem to have any remnants of the dialer trying to be downloaded from www.coulomb.co.uk/dialdemo/dialler.exe on my pc, only this control file. When this executable file is activated simply by going into almost any web site, I get a warning from the 'Spywareguard' utility asking if I want to permit the download of a dialer from www.coulomb.co.uk/dialdemo/dialler.exe. I always say no, but the utility will often then lock up the keyboard for minutes at a time before releasing. This will happen many times while I am on the pc.

    I have found no information that identifies the name of this 'control' file, only the files and registry entries that happen after the dialer is downloaded.

    Below is the output of highjackthis:
