The following is my hijackThis Log file. I need help determining what to delete in order to get rid of the ABOUT:BLANK infection in my computer.
Any assistance is appreciated. I have run several programs and I was able to fix the problem only for few minutes and the the About:Blank keeps coming back. I include a file upload as well as the text. I am not sure it is appropiate to past the text of the logfile here.
Thanks.
Here is the logfile and the startupfile:
