:tazz: I continue to get a lot of ads and spyware. I have run adaware but it has no effect on the about:blank problem. I have read some of your postings about this. Should I proceed based on those answers or wait for a response to my specific problem?

You should follow the steps listed on this thread:
http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html

It will give you several steps for removing of malware and if you have problems after doing the other steps on the guide -- and you may not be --
follow the Step 5 and post your current log of HiJackThis to THAT forum and wait for someone to come up and help you to get a clean PC.

Every infection is a bit different so it's best for you to start a new thread for the problems..

This is in the first part of the instructions...
"The first thing you need to do is to disable WinPatrol until we have you cleaned back up. Leaving it running will cause parts of the fix to not work properly. "
How do you disable WinPatrol?

Hi Robert :tazz:

Please follow Rawes advice from post #5.
With about:blank infections, there are so many variables involved that it is unwise to assume that the techniques used to fix someone elses case will work for you too! That is why we refer you to the link posted by Rawe. If, after doing those steps you still have probs, then post a log as described in step 5 of that page. We can then work out a fix which deals with your particular problem.
