Somehow I picked up a *** file C:\WINDOWS\internt.exe -go -c231 -w69 that keeps knocking out my internet connection and dials something else.

I copied the file name from a shortcut it throws on my desktop but try as I might I cannot find the file to delete it.

Can anyone help to delete this kind of crap.

Hi there,
The best way to get rid of this sort of file is to get some sort of anti-spyware software. A good example is Adaware, which is completely free! If you can't download it on the 'infected' PC due to your dialing problems, download it on another PC and put it on a disc.
If (as once happened to me) you get unwanted results when you do this (for me, it kept shutting my PC down whenever I used any anti-spyware software) try booting your computer up in safemode and then doing it.
To make sure that this doesn't happen again, try downloading something like Spyware Blaster which stops the problem at the source.
Hope this is helpful,
Liam.
