For the last 3 days I've been fighting with about.blank. I swear this happens every few months! :tazz: Today though I ended up with a winlogon.exe applicatiom error, which I'm pretty sure is related to draw32. The thing is now though I can't even boot to safe mode. Every time I try to boot it hangs on the startup screen. Does anyone have any ideas on how to at least get into safe mode? Thanks a lot!!

winlogon.exe can also be a virus so it could have been that

WinLogon.exe is the Windows NT login manager. It handles the login and logout procedures on your system. This process is an essential part of your OS and should be left alone.


Note: winlogon.exe is a process which is registered as the W32.Netsky.D@mm worm. This virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mail and comes in the form of an e-mail message, in the hopes that you open itís hostile attachment. The worm has itís own SMTP engine which means it gathers E-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. It is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately.

If you get anything, you can look for it here to see if X-Cleaner can remove it
