Hi help_me,and welcome to geekstogo. You have a variant of CoolWebSearch that redirects your homepage to about:blank. It also installs a malicious service that prevents it from being fixed. We need to eliminate that service. It's a long fix, but we'll get it.

1. Obtain list of irregular services:
* Please download ServiceFilter.
* Unzip ServiceFilter.zip to a convenient folder like C:\ServiceFilter.
* Navigate to where you unzipped it and double-click on ServiceFilter.vbs.
* If you have an active anti-virus it might prevent the script from starting. Please allow the script to run.
* It will open a text file (POST_THIS.TXT) that lists all of the irregular services.
* Press Ctrl + A simultaneously to select all of the text.
* Copy and paste the whole thing into your next post.
* A copy of POST_THIS.TXT is saved to where ServiceFilter.vbs was saved just in case you accidentally close out of it.
