Hi

I'm normally quite good with removing viruses and whatever myself but the about:blank has got me stumped. I've tried using HJT and it removes the files but when I do a scan about 30 seconds later the files are there. What do I need to do?

Here is a copy of my log:

Also, with the about:blank virus/spyware is it normal for it to reset the display settings? At present my resolution is about 800x600 and I'm in 16 bit colour.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to Bleeping. :thumbsup:

Make a new folder on your desktop and name it 'SpSeHjfix'.
Please download SpSeHjfix (for ME) from here.
Save it to the new folder and unzip the program.

Close any open programs.
Run SpSeHjfix and click on "Start Disinfection".
When it's finished it will reboot your machine to finish the cleaning process.
The tool creates a log of the fix which will appear in the new folder.

Once rebooted, run SpSeHjfix again. After the second reboot, generate a fresh HijackThis log and post it along with the contents of the SpSeHjfix logs.
