Theres not much you can do really if thats their response. you could always try another one of the free av programs like microsoft security essentials or avg. If you can afford it you really need to try getting onto broadband with the cheapest plans you can find. Even the lowest of broadband plans will be a lot better than dialup

if that's the case then you can try other anti-virus that will work on dial up connections. I agree with Buz74, MSE and AVG are great anti-virus that can be updated using dial up connections.
