If your home page comes up as about blank then you have been hijacked,

1.switch off system restore run this CW Shredder click here try and get rid

2.reset home page

3.switch restore back on and create a restore point

It isn't true that if IE starts up with About_Blank that you've been hijacked. That is an optional setting under TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS and one which I choose to use myself.
But it does sound as though you've been hijacked and ID is trying to open another home page. The home page selected is probably too busy and just times out.
You need to run something like Spybot Search and Destroy.

if you buy spy subtract, you can chose the option to lock the homepage.
