First time poster here, hope someone can help with this problem-

I've been battling the about:blank web hijacker for weeks trying to get rid of it, but it keeps coming back. Something has also been adding extra sites to my favorites menu...I have looked at other sites and read the step by step process of getting rid of this, but I get stuck at the applinit_dlls part where it says there's a hidden dll file in the value. When I use registrar lite and click on applinit_dlls, there is nothing located in the value. I've checked the appropriate boxes to view hidden files...so either I'm more blonde than I thought, or it's not the same about blank prob others have had...

Ive used 5 different 'free' spyware removers, but none have worked.

Here's my hijackthis log for today...can anyone help me through this please? I'm feeling like an idiot! Thanks in advance!

Elaine

Hello,

First of all, uninstall bps spyware & adware remover because this is a so called spywareremover with a dubious reputation.

Read here for more info:
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-s...re.htm#products

You are telling that you have 5 'free' spywareremovers on your system, so please look in that list on the link I gave you if those programs are also present on your system and uninstall them.

Good spywareremovers are Adaware SE, Spybot Search&Destroy, Spysweeper and Microsoft Antispyware.

When uninstalled.. reboot!!

* Download CWShredder
Start CWShredder and click FIX

You are also still using a previous version of hijackthis.. so please update your version by starting hijackthis,
click on the 'misc tools'>Check for update online. Download the new version (1.99.1), unzip it and make sure you put it in an permanent folder.
(If the update option doesn't work, please download your new version here)

Post a new hijackthislog with the new version in your next reply.
