In the bottom left of IE page,when a site is loading,it comes up with the above name before the site name.I know about:blank can be a highjacker,but my home page is ok.The sites open up slowly,so im thinking this is not right.Anyone know of a tool to fix it?AVG,Spycatcher A Squared,Adaware and Ewido have found nothing.
There is a hijacker called about blank, but I think the one you are seeing is part of Windows. I had it myself at one time and did some research on the net. It turned out to be harmless, srangely it has since disappeared. I will have another look at about:blank
click here scroll down and look at the screenshot of how the hijack version of about blank shows. The other suggestion by Gringo2005 is a good one and if you have the malware that should get rid of it.
Thanks,ran CWShredder,and came up clear. rawprawn,you say you had it,and its now disappeared.Ive had no browser highjacks,but it just seems to take longer to load a page up and about:blank shows before the web address shows.In the time about:blank shows,the page stays white for around 4 or 5 seconds,which made me think something was wrong.
