Hi everyone,

My friend has been infected by this virus. Does anyone know how to get rid of it? They are runing Windows XP and it seams that everytime they click on Hotmail thay are re-directed to about.blank web browser. Norton anti virus does not pick it up although their spyware software does. They get rid of it but it must be replicating itself because its still on their system

Find a file called HOSTS in the I386 folder. Open it with a text editor and check it. After the comments (preceded by a #) there should only be one entry (well my computer only has one). The only entry should be localhost
