    Angry Arrg.. ! Please Help with a really annoying spyware self dialing connection

    Hello all,

    I have a major, really annoying problem. There is this generic dial-up connection called xxxserver that somehow go onto my system that keeps dialing it's self.
    I've tried uninstalling it for the network-connections folder, and that didn't work.
    I've tried restoring my system to a earlier state with system restore, didn't work.
    I've searched my whole hard drive for it and I can't find it anywhere under the name "xxxserver" and it's not in my add remove programs list either.
    It should have not gotten into my system at all really as I have ICF and AVG running all the time..

    Please please please can someone help, it's really annoying, and it's probably charging loads of money for the number it's dialing.
    I just wanna blast this dran thing off my comp.

    All ideas welcome, Dave.
