Anyone know what "about blank" is. I have a problem opening particular info pages on a website. When i click on the relevant numbers to open the window I get a flash in the tray at the bottom of the screen which says "about blank microsoft". I think it might be something to do with Java but not sure any thoughts anyone please?

I think it can be two seperate things, 1) as
csqwared points out, malware, and 2) Part of Microsoft system32, which if you have a desktop icon and click it, or activate it in Windows. It will close Windows and delete any uneeded files/programs, which really takes you back to bare Windows. If anybody has another explanation I shall be glad to hear it, but we found this icon on my friends Mesh computer after some problems and this was the answer we came up with
