Why don't you try reinstalling IE? The Microsoft site should provide that service.

I reinstalled SP-2 from a disk and now IE does work....sort of. There is still something wrong with images not being displayed right. It's like the DPI has changed or something and colors aren't quit normal. The DPI is set to normal, and so is the text size in the browser, which is Medium. If I set the text size to smallest then web pages start to look more normal, but they’re still not right. Encoding is set correctly too.

Also, the background color is still not right in normal Windows help pages. I have set everything back to their default settings in the display control panel windows.

I’ve checked all the settings for the ATI video card and they’re all on default.

I did sfc /scannow again and nothing changed.

Any suggestions? (Please don't say format and start over)

Before I refer you to one of our tech forums, there is a followup required to the About:blank infection.

Beware that this variant occasionally deletes important Windows files.
  • If you get error messages on reboot after performing these fixes, you may have to replace one or more of the following files:

    1) control.exe
    2) shell.dll
    3) wmplayer.exe
    4) rundll32.exe
    5) msconfig.exe
    6) notepad.exe

    You can get copies of these files from Merijn's page

  • The other file sometimes deleted is HOSTS --- replace it by running : The Hoster
    and using "Restore Original HOSTS".
Regards,

I'm not getting any of the error messages that you mentioned so I' think I'm ok there. :tazz:

I guess I will just try a few more things. What about a repair from the XP install disc? I believe that will wipe out SP-2, which I could reinstall.

You are on your own with this stuff. I suggest we close this thread and you consult one of our tech threads.
