A machine on my network has acquired about.blank. This is a Pentium 4 with Xp (SP-2) installed. My boss was using the machine and yesterday evening it started locking up on him. When I open Internet Explorer, about.blank comes up. The only time I can do anything on this machine is when I am in Safe Mode. I have tried running Ad-Aware. It finds dozens of items and supposedly deletes them. I have used CWShredder. It says that I am clean. I have attempted to scan for viruses using Norton, but it can't delete the threatening files that it finds. I am posting the Hijackthis log below.
Can someone please help?
