The files detected as Dialer.B actually belong to a commercial program. This software can reach computers through two means:
1. - Direct access via the Internet.
On accessing certain web pages, users are asked to confirm that they want the software to be installed.
2. - Independent files.
When the file WINTRIM.EXE, which contains the application's code, is run, the files and Windows Registry entries associated to the program will be copied to the computer without asking for the user's permission.
Due to the nature of this software, the detection routine for the files belonging to this program has been removed from our products.
