Used Hijack, spywareguard (to keep it from actually changing anything) and CW Shredder in safe mode to remove about:blank only for it to come back a few hours later.

I saw in a thread to download registrar lite and have it look for a .dll file.

This is the file name in the value field:

C:\WINNT\System32\ctlkp.dll

Should I keep or trash and then if I run CW Shredder and Hijack again will it be gone?

Thanks

BK

Would be useful to check your Hijack This log, to see what OS you´re using.
If you´re using XP...
Please follow these steps:


Step 1:
Go to Folder Options> View

Scroll to the bottom of the list to find the box labeled:
Use Simple File Sharing(Recommended)
Remove the check from that box and press ok.

Step 2:

Download CWShredder from this link:
http://www.spywarein.../CWShredder.exe

Save that file somewhere as we will use it later.

Step 3:

Download this file and then immediately sign off the
internet and stay off until all steps are finished.


The file to download is here:

http://computercops....ownload&id=1183

Extract the batch file (hiving.bat) and run it. If you have script blocking enabled you will get a warning. Please allow this to run. The script is just producing a message box.

After a reboot the super hidden nasty file will no longer be loaded and will be visible. This will end the constant reinstall of about:Blank.

Step 4:

Restart the Computer.

Find this file:
c:\windows\system32\ctlkp.dll

Use the security tab on ctlkp.dll and take ownership.
Change the 'everyone special' to
'you> with Admin rights-> FULL control
Then try to delete it, if that fails try to rename
it first to different name+ext.

Example:
ctlkp.dll>bleh.txt
bleh.txt > badfile.111

Please zip that file and store it somewhere as I would like you to email it to me.

Now delete the original file.

Step 5:

Extract and Run CWShredder immediately.
Press the fix button to clean.

Restart and run hijackThis again.
Post your new log here in your next reply.

OK...Here is what I did based on your response. (BTW...thank you)

1. Didn't know where you were referring to to change the options menu so I didn't

2. Already had CWShredder but when I tried to download a new update (I last updated it last week) I couldn't as it kept saying the site wasn't there so when I ran CW I had to run it from my last update.

3. Ran the program you had me download and rebooted and ran CW Shredder.
I have the file that I renamed bad.111 but it wouldn't let me put it into winzip for some reason.

Finally here is my newest Hijack log.
