I am not sure what you mean by dialer program but try going to start settings control panel and click on add/remove programs and look for the name of the program you are reffering to and click remove. If it isnt listed there then right click in the gray area of your task bar and select properties. From there select the start menu programs tab and click remove. All your programs should be listed in there. Just click the one dialer program and click remove. Also double click my computer and open up dialup networking and see whats in there. If you see a dialer you dont want or use delete it.

Check to see in Network neighborhood if there is an associated adaptor for the dialer. If there is remove that and then try to delete the program.

Follow the directions of the above two answers, and if that does not work, find ouy where the files are located on your hard drive and then reboot to DOS. Delete the files through DOS. This should get rid of it.

If you need help with the dos commands go to http://www.computerhope.com/msdos.htm.

Good Luck
