The scenario goes like this:
When clicking on a link that is in an email (I use Eudora) on some occasions, not all, an Internet Explorer window (I use Firefox) will open. That window will contain "about:blank" in the address field and is completely blank in the body portion of that window. Nothing else happens and my Firefox browser opens and takes me to the actual link shown in the email. I click on the X and shut it down. This has been occurring for several months. But now something new happened.

Exactly the same as described above except that the browser address is now "about:blank#section5" and the body contains "blank#section5" - this is the first time that this has occurred.

The other page that I described above is also still on the system.

Below is the HijackThis 199 log. I do not see any references to either of these problems in this log. An analysis by www.hijackthis.de shows no references to either of the problems.

I've tried most of the programs that advertise that they can solve this problem but all I've got as a result is frustration.

Any help would be most appreciated. This one is driving me nuts.

Sorry for the delay and thanks for responding.
I ran all of the programs with the following results:
Ad-Aware se - nothing found

CW Shredder - nothing found

Spybot S&D - found & removed "MYSOFT" (kazaa item)

AV - used NOD32 - found nothing (this is my regular AV program)

Trend Housecall - unable to run / java problem / tried twice w/same result

Panda Activescan - works only w/IE - I use Firefox 1.0.2

CounterSpy - found & removed "com.com" cookie (this is my regular spyware)

TDS-3 - showed 12 items but I didn't do anything with them (except print the results) because I didn't know what to do with them.

I want to stress that about:blank is not hijacking my browser. It acts as follows:
I open Eudora and retrieve my email.
Sometimes, but not always, when I click on a hyperlink in an email message, instead of opening my Firefox browser it first opens a blank Internet Explorer screen and shows an address of about:blank (or a variant of that-see first message). Immediately after opening the IE screen Firefox opens and the URL from the email hyperlink is activated. The IE screen just sits in the background doing nothing. It doesn't seem so cause any problem but it sure is a pain to close all the time. Also, I really don't want to use IE for anything - too many security holes.

Thanks for listening and your help.

Hello,
Please put HiJackThis in it's own permanent folder....for storing important backups!!!

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which while highlighted you can rename to "HJT". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.
Please put your HijackThis.exe there and post a new Hijackthis log.

New Log file-
Also, on previous message under TDS-3, I have the location and name of each of the 12 items that I didn't know how to handle, if you need them.
Sorry about the previous send. I think I understand now.
Thanks!!

Hello DitigalHerb, your log is clean. On doing some searching I found a few topics at Eudora Forums? where other users are experiencing the same symptoms. One member suggested to:

Go tools\options\viewing mail

Turn off allow Executables in HTML content

You may want to post your problem over there and someone I'm sure can help with this problem better than I. Good luck and thanks for using our forums for your spyware issues.

P.S. if you want to post the "location and name of each of the 12 items" from TDS-3 scan I'll be glad to take a look.

Hello again, njustice -
The Eudora item mentioned was already turned off. No help there.

Below are the log items from the TDS-3 run. They don't mean much to me so I appreciate your taking the time to look them over. All suggestions are welcome.
The column headings are those shown in the program.
Thanks again for your help.

I believe this is where Norton stores the live update information :

NTFS Alternate Data Stream ADS Hidden Stream Detected 493 bytes
c:\documents & settings\all users\application data\symantec\hpc:1780292171

===============


Cannot find any info these:

You can go HERE and browse to each file and Submit for analysis.

Suspicious Filename Dual extensions
c:\documents & settings\herb\desktop\dvd program & guides\setupdvddecryptr_3.5.2.0.exe

Positive identification Riskware.ProcessRestart
c:\program files\kodak\kodak software updater\7288971\6.3.2.62-7288971\program\restart.exe

===============


These here are in your System Restore:

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. Go back and uncheck the box for Turn off System Restore and create a new restore point.
