Hi Fudge-Pants. Welcome to BC.
I'm sorry to hear about your infection of About:Blank. It stinks
and is a constantly annoying problem for many of us. Your best
bet for removal is to get a HJT log. Here's what you do:
to get the HijackThis program. It's totally free. You'll find easy instructions on that page as well.
Once you get your log, post it here
by clicking on "New Topic" at the top right corner area. Our HJT staff works on a volunteer 'first come, first served' basis. Please allow them time to view your log and repond to you with instructions.
