Hi,

My windows 98SE has been overtaken by the pesky "about:blank" files.
I have read many posts and followed the manual instructions posted by Bob0 (in the Pinned topics at the top - http://www.spywarein...opic=10746&hl=), but I do not seem to have a "Windows Procedure" Hook Type in my System Information (other than the one associated with ).

AdAware 6.0 has been used. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Here is my HijackThis log file:
