about:blank hijacked me

  [DELETED] 16:57 23 Mar 2006

I have been trying for over a week to rid my computer from this pest which has taken over part of my HD used as Guest. I have tried the following without success. Ewido, Trend Micro, CW shredder, A squared, MS Windows Difender, Spybot, Symantec Backdoor agent tool, Lavasoft Adaware & also have Spywareblaster. I also tried on Safe Mode. About{blank vanishes for a while and then crops up again, taking over Internet Explorer and nothing works when I click. I joined a forum at click here, as I also installed HijackThis and was hoping for some instructions as to how to rid myself of this hijacker but I have had no reply yet. It is exhausting !!!

There are people, who are members of this forum, who have the skills to remove this piece of malware, as they did for me. Just keep checking your thread, I am sure they will come to your aid shortly.

The Kestrel......thank you. I forgot to mention that I also took off Restore in case it restores itself, but still no joy.

Have you tried vcleaner.exe from AVG, download to a floppy, rename it, boot up in safe mode and run it, may help, maybe worth a try

Cesare....Something for you to try.....Click the link below and download the Registry Optimiser version.
Its a free trial with no limits.If you decide to buy the product,you will find it is not much difference to the trial version except the trial version will only clean 10 errors at any one time.
Once downloaded,run the registry scanner (tick all boxes)...You will have to rescan and repair under the trial version as like i said it will only repair 10 errors at once.
Once you have scanned,goto the advanced tools and optimise your Internet Explorer again tick all boxes.
Ive used this program for 2 years to very good effect.
You may well be surprised how good this program is.click here

Something else to try,this will notify you of any changes to your start up entries and anything trying to install and change your settings.click here

VOG Unbelievable but I cant go in this site to register because as soon as I click Register, I keep getting, 'The page cannot be displayed'. I tried several times. Will try again later.

VOG I have registered on both malwareremover and computertrouble and posted my problem. Hopefully some reply will be forthcoming as my computer becomes sluggish at times and is annoying.
