My wife's laptop has this:

I don't want to duplicate what has already been done - because it would be a waste of everybody's time.

This thread also has the same problem:

Hello rhubarbe,

I'm moving your topic to the Am I Infected forum as you didn't post any logs. Please note that every infection is unique and requires a unique approach to resolve. Because of that, please describe the computer issues you are having. Also, please tell us what steps you have taken to resolve the problems. If necessary, we will refer you to the log forum and provide explicit instructions for posting there.

I have thrown it out of the window, jumped up and down on it and poured coffee into the usb port.

Seriously, I have run MBAM, SSAD, LAA, HJT, AVG8. Everything comes back as clean.

I have removed IE8, IE7 and am now back on 6. I have tried to restore to earlier state but none of the restore points work. I have disabled access to IE.

On reboot IE opens automatically and without user intervention with about:blank, followed by redirection to one of the ad pages listed on the other two threads that I highlighted above.

The sites are more or less random but ALWAYS include spcgame.

The reason I didn't post any logs is because having read the other two threads on spcgame IE redirect, none of the logs helped in any way to solve the problem. Indeed, the problem has not been solved on either of the other threads as I speak.

My computer may have this too.
IE opens a window and displays 5 ads. Then nothing happens for an hour and the behavior repeats. The url is alway "about blank".
I suspect Serebys' Update pack IE8 add on version 1.0.7. but have little evidence. I use firefox, not IE. The serebys add on is installed without a removal option in add and remove programs.
If you need more info, I'm glad to supply it.
