Hi Guys,
I've been inundated with an "about:blank" hijacker. I have tried TrendMicro Internet Security 2005, Microsoft Anti Spyware, Hijack This, Spyware Blaster, Spybot Search and Destroy.
I am including a Hijack This logfile from today. I have browsed your form and really need to know the correct procedure, because all the things I have tried have not worked. The hijacker keeps coming back, or I'm not finding and deleting the real source of the hijacker. Very, very frustrating.

Right now it seems that the only time that the about:blank shows up is over in hotmail or yahoo. My main mail is o.k., but I also use the Foxmail client, and the hijacker search page is present if I click on any name in the address book. I can, however, delete the contents of the page by selecting a text only message from the menu. Then Select All and delete. Don't know if any of the code is still present there.

The bottom line is that the thing still keeps writing to the registry and it starts all over again.

If you guys can help get rid of this thing, I will donate to your excellent website.

Thanks,

Jim Sunseri.............................
