Am new to the board and have only just registered. Have a problem and am desperate for some help.

Have a machine running Windows 2000 Professional Edition and have been plagued with the about:blank hijacking debacle.

Have come across this manace in other machines but CWShredder has always managed to eliminate the problem.

Methodically followed the instructions offered on this forum to manually get rid of this menace but have run into a snag.

I cannot identify the 'hidden dll file". Downloaded and installed Register Lite, but the 'AppInit_DLLs' key does not appear in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\

Am hoping someone can help me here.


Mod Edit: This will be moved to a more appropriate Forum.

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.
