|I have this file in system32 and when I delete it after 3-4 seconds of pc activity it "magically" reappears.I think it is part of a dialler hijack trojan or worm, which I had and successfully removed some of the files so it does not cause any actual harm to me,but I dearly like to defeat the remaining parts.

|Driver for the SmartLink modem. Disable if you don't use your modem any longer, just remember to turn it on if you ever want to connect to the Internet over dial-up in some 3rd world country. If your computer doesn't have a modem then it is probably a virus|
