About:Blank issue:
http://www.lavahelp....04/05/1801.html


Have HijackThis "fix" the following:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe
O4 - Global Startup: MuchTV Remote.lnk = ?
("?" = broken link)

Hi,
You're welcome ... you are not alone on the "About:Blank" issue. AWW has been swamped with users wondering what happened. FYI: I have mine set that way too.
