amigos, os informo que por error permití que se me instalara este dialer al instalar un programa porque habian unos archivos que no podia leer y ahora,cada vez que entro en internet, se me abren paginas de publicidad. los antivirus me lo detectan como DiFuSa y no lo puedo quitar.
la dirección exacta es: c.\ program files\common files\ microsoft shared\ ink\skchui.dll
voy a intentar otra vez quitarlo con el programa FREEFIXER
