Help!! Just did a factory restart after crashing. Now computer goes to default home page (about:blank) everytime I press home. I have changed the internet settings to the proper home page but it keeps reverting to about:blank. How do I get my home page back. Thanks

Hi there soccermom, and welcome to GTG! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

This hijack is more difficult to remove than most, and requires a three step process, but hang with us and we'll get rid of it. <_<

Click here to download and install Registrar Lite. Install, run, copy and paste this line to reglite's address bar:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs
then hit the "go" tab. Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side panel, DoubleClick, copy and post here the information in the 'Value' field.

Click here or here to download FindnFix.exe by freeatlast. Double-click on the FINDnFIX.exe and it will install a folder called FINDnFIX on your system. Go to that folder and double-click on !LOG!.bat. The program takes a few minutes to collect the necessary information. When done post the contents of Log.txt in this thread.
