Hi all,

I need help getting rid of some sort of dialler.
Every time I connect to internet using dial up, after only a few minutes my connection is terminated and the PC is trying to make a new connection called 'x-connect' which I never had. It dials a number which is not recognised by my telephone service. I have tried deletining this connection but it's no use.

I have also searched online but I haven't come across a clear set of instructions to sort this out.

can anyone help?

Thank you

No two problems are ever exactly alike. You should raise a "new post" of your own, otherwise it will be totally confusing for anyone to try to interact with two parties.

While you are waiting for an expert, try downloading the free version of MalwareBytes and running it to see if this finds anything (it's a good program):

I have x-connect problem on my PC too. I noticed it started once I started Skype. I also noticed on Internet Explorer, open menu Tools > Internet Options, go to Connections tab, I have "x-connect" and "z-connect" in the "Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings" box. below that in the section of "Choose Settings if you need to configure a proxy server for a connection". I changed the radio button choice to "Never dial a connection" from "Dial whenever a network connection is not present". restart my Skype and problem seems gone away. I still don't know what is this x-connect thing.

actually one more point - I have "Avira AntiVir Personal" anti-virus installed and it catches 2 malware upon Skype start after I reboot my PC. I delete them from Avira. So this may also help. I learned Avria from MalwareBytes support forum:
