I' keep getting an about:blank that is overriding my homepage and only allows a few sites to work. It lets me into BleepingComputer.com howerver once I try and post or read anything it keeps popping up a message saying your computer may be affected blah..blah.blah. Click here for more nonsense. Anyone with some help on removing this problem I would appreciate it. I have to use another computer right now to access the internet.

Could be a smitfraud infection which is known to give bogus alerts saying your computer is infected. Does it look like this or anything shown here?

If so, go here and follow the instructions for using SmitfraudFix.

If not, post back and we'll try another approach.
