I've been infected with the about:blank virus for a while and have been unsuccessful in my attempts to remove it.I have started a few topics on this issue and worked with some of bleeping computers trained members but its still here.Does anyone know how to remove it?


Also I still have combofix, tdsskiller, OTL, and Defogger on my desktop.Should they be removed? and if so how do I do it?

Why have you not completed the work started there?
Gringo is very capable of fixing this...

Hello

Because when I sent a PM for him to reopen in I never got a response so I thought I needed to start a new topic.

Hello. I re opened this
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html

They didn't answer your PM because they asked you to ask a Moderator to re open the topic is needed.

So if you are serious about finishing that topic,then post a new DDS log there in reply as Gringo was fair enough to take it on again.

let me know if you post there,thanks.

I was serious about this but moved on when I felt that I was being ignored.Gringo did attempt to help but my problems, I believe are beyond his knowledge, since he had me do the same things over again.Which proved time and time again to be ineffective.


So can someone tell me how to remove combofix, tdsskiller, OTL, and Defogger,since they are still on my PC?


And if you're curious as to why I'm giving a late response.I've been busy with life.Would really appreciate a response.
