hello, i registered in this forum because i saw the other threads and i think you could be able to help me. I dont know what my computer has, virus, or spyware, but i cant remove the about:blank page from being my homepage, and i also cant stop the annoying pop ups that tell me that my computer is affected with spyware. :tazz: . So I downloaded hijack this, and this is what I got:
