Hello,

I am thankful to have found this place. I have read the FAQ, followed instructions carefully, including downloading, updating, and running Spybot and Adaware.

Adaware seems to reset my browser to MSN, but when computer is rebooted, about.blank is back.

I want to get rid of it, completely get it off my computer. I will be grateful for help doing that.

I am posting below the scan log from Hijackthis.

(Should note that the one instruction I didn't obey was to re-enable software previously turned off in MsConfig. My computer will not boot if all that stuff is turned on. There isn't enough RAM to accomodate all the programs. But think there is nothing that I recently turned off, think all dates back to well before this problem started.)

Download StartDreck from here. Unzip to its own folder and start the program:

Press 'Config'
Press 'Unmark All'

Check the following boxes only:
Registry -> Run Keys
System/drivers> Running processes

Press 'Ok'. Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application). Post the log in this thread.
