Have you seen this before. :badpc: ( about:blank ) :badpc: Has it driven you insane. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH it makes you want to find the piece of smegma that created it and touch him in a rather violent way.

It you dont no what I am talking abuot. I have a computer here that has had IE6 hijacked by about:blank. I have tried Ad-aware, spyware doctor and AVG and nortons but to no avail. Can some one please help me get the internet back.

Cheers guys

How to setup AboutBuster version 6

Download AboutBuster (http://www.majorgeeks.com/AboutBuster_d4289.html)

Then unzip all files from the zip folder to a folder or your desktop. Start it and press the OK button. Then hit the update button and a new screen will appear. On that screen press the Check for Updates button..

To scan your machine, press the Start button and then press OK. The program should start scanning. When it is done, press the exit button and reboot. Once rebooted run About:Buster one more time.

This program is updated often so you should always use the built in update feature before you scan with it.


then....

Please download HijackThis (http://www.cyberanswers.org/forum/uploads/HijackThis1991.exe). It will create a directory folder for you in C\Program files. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required). This program will help determine what,if any, spyware/malware is on your computer.
