Somehow or another (okay, it was thru a russian porn site!!! ) I have ended up with this about:blank malware, or whatever it is, and have been unable to get rid of it. It has caused problems with my yahoo IM so that I can't get into it, and interferes with various programs. Everything I have read on it states that it is very difficult to get rid of, hides in the registry, etc.. I have tried various spyware programs and no luck. Has anyone else had this and discovered a way to get rid of it? Just to be clear, when it comes to computers I am a neophyte. Please give explanations as if you are talking to a 6 year old. Scratch that. My nephew knows more than me. Make it 4 years old! I would really appreciate any help!!!!
