When i try to enter some websites an pop up called about blank will come up and cause an error message to appear then the internet will shut down. These pop ups seem to bypass my pop up blocker from panicware. Does anyone know how to stop this annoying problem.

Ad-aware run in Safe Mode will get rid of some variants of the about:blank hijacker.

Download Ad-aware click here and update it.

Restart and keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen loads. Select Safe Mode from the menu. Run Ad-aware and delete everything that it finds.

If that doesn't work, CWShredder click here
