So I've got some problems, any help would be really great. Every time I start the computer Syware Guard pops up with: I.E. Search page changed to about:blank, I.E. default page changed to about:blank, I.E. homepage changed to about:blank, I.E. default search URL changed to about:blank,.......this happens over and over again even while not connected to the internet. There is also a toolbar at the top I.E. page (don't know what the deal is with that, good/bad)......I have done the following: >scanned with Ad-Aware Se (reconfigured to specs on instruction page) >Ran CWShredder >Ran Spybot S&D >Ran Trend House Call virus scan >Ran TDS-3(a little confusing).....all of this turned up nothing. except for TDS-3, it found a couple of trojans and some kind of adware which I removed. Still have problem. I downloaded HiJack This to post the log, but when I run the scan then save the log I can't retrieve it. ??? what am I doing wrong? where should I save the log to? Thanks again for any help.

Hi rutugar

You have a nasty About:Blank infection. This fix requires several tools that need to be downloaded. Please download these now, we will run them later.

1) About:Buster - Download it and extract it to C:/aboutbuster.
2) CleanUp! - Download it and install it.
3) CWShredder 2.11 - Download it and save it to your desktop.
4) Ad-Aware - Download, install, and update.

Enable hidden files and folders: http://www.bleepingc...torial=62#winme

During the fix do NOT connect to the internet. Unless you can memorize these instructions, it would be a good idea to print them out.

Boot into safe mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Run AboutBuster
-Click Start to begin the process
-Click OK on the Buster Report dialogue box to start the scan
AboutBuster scans the computer for malicious files and deletes them.
Save the report (copy and paste into Notepad and save as a .txt file) to post a copy for review.

Run CWShredder
-Next, click on the: ‘Fix’ button
-Follow the prompts, and press OK

Run CleanUp
-Make sure it is on Standard Mode
-Click the "CleanUp!" button

Run Ad-Aware
-Configure Ad-Aware for a full system scan
-Run it

Clean Up the left overs

Run HJT, close any open windows, and fix the following items (if they are still there):

HJT FIXES

Then delete the following files (if they exist):

FILE DELETIONS

Reboot into normal mode (simply restart your computer as you normally would), and run the following free, online virus scans:

http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp
http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm
http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp

Then restart your computer one more time and post a new HJT log as well as the About:Buster log I asked you to save earlier.

Hi rutugar

1) Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).

close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

O15 - Trusted IP range: 206.161.125.149
O15 - Trusted IP range: (HKLM)


Reboot your PC.

2) Please run a free online virus scan here.(tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):

3)Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and we'll remove what's left.
