Default Spybot Search & Destroy problems...

Hi, I'm not very good with computers so please explain verrrrry sloooowly

I use Spybot Search & Destroy daily, every night before I switch off...

Recently, I've noticed that while it's scanning, the bottom bar of the program scans through words such as XXX or WebDialer or Sex-something-or-other.

But when it's finished scanning and is in the 'summary' page of what problems have been encountered, it makes no mention of these sex dialers.

1) How did these sex-dialers get onto my computer without me knowing? I am firewalled, and run AdAware and Spybot daily...

2) Why does Spybot scan through them but not present them as problems for fixing after the scan is complete? I assume that they are left on my computer...

3) How can I purge my system of these porn site dialers, short of reformatting the whole computer?

It's very worrying, because I'm connected through a cable modem... if these sex dialers run on my computer without me knowing, they stand to make a lot of money from my phone bill!

Thanks for any suggestions
