about-blank launches itself every time I start ICQ 5 manually. None of my spyware programs has been able to find it and remove it. I'm tired of having to clean my computer every time I go on ICQ. I need help finding and removing it. Thanks. Here is my HJT log.

Hello PO'd and welcome to BleepingComputer.

WinAntiVirus and SpywareRemover are both on the list of Rogue Anti-Spyware and as such I would stongly suggest you uninstall them from Add/Remove Programs. Popup watch is by the same group that brings you SpywareRemover.

Other than those, I see no malware in your log.


If you chose to remove any or all of the above, please post a new log and we'll see if further cleanup is needed or if anything else shows up.
