Hello,

I'm a complete blockhead when it comes to technical computer stuff, and I could really use a computer guru to solve my problem. The problem is that my homepage keeps getting set to about:blank. At first I couldnt even re-set the homepage, but after running CWShredder I was able to set it however after I run IE a few times the homepage is "automatically" set bact to about:blank again!!!

I have read a bunch of articles and tried a ton of software trying to solve this problem and none seem to completely fix it. Additionally, when it comes to manipulating the registry entries I have no idea of what to do.

Although I'm a knucklehead, I do follow instructions very well. Please help me get my system back to normal. I'm begging!!! Not to mention it's good kharma!

Thanks All,
John

Clear out your Temporary internet files and other temp files. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel >
Internet Options. Under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files,
choose to delete all Offline content. Clear out Cookies.

Also, go to Start > Find/search > Files or folders > in the named box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit > select all ->
File > delete.

Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one.

This one too if Win2K or XP.
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Can you try and see if you can download these files

Links are under my name, hopefully the pages will come up. If not I will send you Direct links

Spybot S&D

and Ad-Aware

After you Run CWShredder make sure you are rebooting.

I will look at your log while you do those things :D

please send us a new HJT log after you finish those tasks

Thank you so much for your reply. I've done everything youve asked except for deleting the stuff in the temp folders. These temp folders contained sub-folders, and I wasnt sure if I should delete these sub-folders as well. Please Inform.
