My pc is subject to pop-ups and interent access via google is blocked and replaced with about:blank. No norton anti-virus or equivalent is currently running. I will, too late, take full cognisance of your tutorial guidance on virus/spyware which also state seek guidance if hyjack this is to be persued. A number of other sites are in my favourite folder which when removed , retunr on re-boot.
I have tried
1 spywareguide.com - which recognises about:blank but cant remove it
2 mcafee stinger - which doesnt identify it
3 spy ferret - which identifies it but requires $39 to set up the delete part of the process
4 cw shredder - which doesnt identify it
5 spybot - which doesnt identify it
and so i am here
I look forward to hearing from you.
