How to remove a web dialer program

Question

Some of my freinds were playing on my computer and now I have this web dialer program that I can't seem to remove.

My Adaware & Spybot don't remove it.

It isn't shown in the list on Add or Remove.

I do a search to find the location to delete it, but it won't allow me to delete.

I have tried disconnecting from the cable modem, rebooting, then deleting, but it comes back as soon as I reconnect to the modem.

This is what is displayed in the window by the browse button when it tries to install it's self.

C:\WINDOWS\Temp\hpware_Pre_NA_HOME_3.2.1\HpsdpAppHow can I disable or remove this type of program?

Help.

Webdialer installs a exe program in your windows folder that re-installs upon a reboot The program was called 5-2-125-1.exe in my PC The easiest way to get rid of it is by removing this file from your windows folder so it can not reinstall upon reboot Also make sure you have removed the webdailer program folder from your harddrive
