Here is my problem. Every time I try to start the Internet Explorer browser...It slowly looks like my homepage is going to open up, then it stops and is replaced with about:blank - like this:
http://i33.tinypic.com/5jryxl.jpg
http://i36.tinypic.com/5f2an6.jpg

I have tried a couple of spyware/malware removal tools which have been unsuccessful which has led me here. Firefox works without any problems though. I hope someone can help. T.I.A
