I have got the about:blank virus, but I don't see what would be causing it on this log. Can someone help?

Hi matthewdf
You have many issues here,
This will take some running through,

First
You have a Peper Trojan
Go here and run the The Removal Tool
. You must be connected to the internet for it to work.
Close all open windows then run it. It will run in a flash so don't think it hasn't worked!
Reboot

Next,
Download the DelDomains zip file and unzip it to your desktop.

DelDomains

Right-click on the deldomains.inf file and select 'Install'

Reboot your computer,

Next,
Reboot to safe mode ( By tapping the F8 key on start up)

Delete the entire contents of the below Temp folders, but not the TEMP folder itself.

Remove all the files and sub-folders from the below TEMP Folders:

C:\Documents and Settings\ \Local Settings\Temp
C:\temp
C:\windows\temp

The TIF ( Temporary Internet Files) can also be emptied via:
Internet Explorer--Tools--Internet Options--General tab--"Delete Files",
Also tick the "delete all offline content" box .

Empty your Recycle Bin

Next,
Please run these two online scans. Make sure they are set to clean automatically:

TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

You should try to delete any files that these scanners are unable to clean. Then let us know if its working better and what the scans found.

Then scan again with HijackThis and post another log.

I ran through the steps that you had me do, and the activescan found 3 infected files and removed them and the other scan found 1 trojan and it removed that also. I tried to change my browser to my normal homepage, but it still goes back to about:blank. Here is my new HJT log:

After you download the program, unzip it into a directory. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program. When the program is loaded click on the "Check for Update" button, and if it finds an new version it will download it.
