I have a programme to remove spyware, however, I still don't get my own homepage to default i.e. when I boot up I get 'about blank' as my default.

Instructions are click here but this is a nasty one and, with respect, you have to know what you are doing.

I suggest that you run Hijackthis click here (follow the instructions!) then post the log at one of the specialist spyware forums click here

About blank home page is a sympton of being Hijacked by coolweb search. Use CWshredder linked above to get rid and then reset your home page to your liking.

with all due respect Fruit Bat, about:blank is a Coolweb infection and you can clean it using CWShredder... but the infection will just come back because your system will be re-infected by a hidden dll. You have to make that dll visible and then eradicate it.... then you can clean up with CWShredder.
