Sure we can! But first, I'd suggest that you read the directions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ and then post a HiJackThis log there to ensure that the about:blank is completely gone!

Once the security experts have cleaned your system out, then we can fix anything that may have been broken by the viruses/spwyare.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
