I have had about:blank for about three weeks now and it is driving me mad. If fact I have just had a pop-up interrupt this log!

I don't know how I have got it but I am really careful about what I put on my home PC.

Anyway - here is my Hijackthis log - I have read a number of forums and tried, Ad-Ware, Spypost, Pest Control and Hijack this but it keeps coming back. I post this log after a complete Ad-ware sweep and then launching IE6

Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1

Everytime I delete the suspicious files they return after I open IE.

(On a side note is anyone trying to prosecute adware companies/authors because it is the single most irritating thing about the internet.)
