Title: Aconti
Post by: Lona on March 09, 2005, 21:47
My friend has just received her pc back after having a dvd writer installed.

When she booted it up for the first time a new programme was showing in the taskbar called Aconti.

I did a search on Google and was shocked to find it was a high cost dialler.

How could this programme have appeared as she had not even connected to the internet.? :shock:

Who installed the DVD Writer?  Maybe they were using the PC on the Internet while they were supposed to be working on it?  :(

Thanks guys, it was a friend who fitted the dvd writer.  

I don't think he would put it on intentionally. I think I have got rid or I hope I have.
