Hello group,
Quite some time ago I was infected with a virus that opens another browser window and
About:Blank is in the title bar. This would then search and bring up various sites that
were not related to the topic in the browser window I was searching in. The new browser
window would open behind the window I was in and didn't seem to affect what I was doing
just annoying.

My operating system is Windows XP professional.
I use Firefox browser.
I have tried numerous cleaners:
Lavasoft Ad-Aware
Spybot S&D
PC Cleaner Pro
All scans come up clean. Where do I begin? Thank you. Dave

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
