about:blank --- again

I have been having problems with this thing!!!. Before posting I have searched and had a look at the other about:blank threads. Ive tried all the suggested software such as cwshredder, kavspersky etc over the last few days, nothing has zapped it.
The sort of remedies that Nellie2 & Mark2 ? give are way beyond me, what can I do now? Someone, (not on this forum) has suggested PCcillin, does anyone have any experience there?
I am running Win98SE, would formatting & clean re-installation get shot of it, I could cope with that as I only have My Docs & MS Outlook data to save. Any help would be appreciated.

OK I think you have been attacked by spyware, as I was some time ago. What I did was this.

1. Install and run Addaware & Spybot. These got rid of the immediate attack. However a short while later it was back.

2. Loaded Hijackthis. It's not a simple piece of software to run but it killed the attack never to reapear again.

You can find all 3 pieces of free software by searching Google.

If you want advice on what to do with Hijackthis email me.

The fix for W98 is different to that for XP.. Apart from that, each AB fix is different anyway because the malware files are different. I would need to see a hijackthis log to be able to give you some advice. See click here for instructions and click here for a download link
