i couldnt find a free version of adwareaway or any about blank removal but i found this:: and it worked for me.

To remove about:blank open your browser then go to view source.

Look for a string that looks like: res:%43%3a%5c (etc). Make a copy of the complete string then go to

[www.simplelogic.com]

Paste the string in here and press "clean data" you should get some ***.dll file. Write it down

then shut down your computer and restart it but DO NOT go online yet.

Go into "Find files or folders" type in the ***.dll when it appears move it to your desktop then delete it (or rename it if u cant delete)

and finally scan your computer with any malware scanner such as adaware
to delete any remaining parts of the program.

Now all you need to do is right click on your browser go into properties delete about:blank and type in what ever your homepage address was and click apply.

downloaded and used microsoft's antispyware removal, removed all in the list, then ran Hijackthis.exe, and removed the "BHO - no name" file listed....then ran microsoft's program AGAIN....deleted cookies, files, history on IE, then rebooted......at this point, as of right now, I am getting messages that microsoft's antispyware is blocking these bad programs, and my home page is fine eveytime i start IE now......so the problem seems to be fixed......hope this works

trying to download the adware away file and it will either get to

the "download completed successfully" but, then it freezes and you have

to close it out and the window of course says program is not responding

as far as download 99% complete and the same thing happens!! I am

running windowsXP. My computer knowledge is limited, but I will give

anything a whirl!! Thank U so much in advance for your help!!

All My Best, Brenda

Use the official Microsoft tool:

[www.microsoft.com]

If that doesn't work, get the PC seen to by an expert.

I'm having the same problem with "about:blank" that everyone else has had. I've used all of the removal software that has been recomended for this particular virus, but to no avail. Anyone who even takes the time to look at my logfile is a saint. Many thanks in advance; I am at a total loss.

When I now try to run windows onecare a scripting error window pops up preventing me from running the program and mentions URL about blank.
I read one members comment about running the Microsoft program to remove about blank but which program. I was unable to find one in the Microsoft site.
