Hello, urbxangel24.
Welcome aboard.

Why don't you submit a HijackThis log to be examined. The HJT Team will examine the log, then if any problems are found, they'll take you step by step through the fix.

They will also make suggestions about, how to prevent this from happening again.

Here's how to post a HJT log:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a couple of days to get a response, the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

If you have anymore problems, or questions, be sure to ask.

Once again, welcome aboard, and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

:thumbsup: to BC urbxangel24

It is nice to see another angel that has joined our boards. We even have a TX one. When you see her, make sure you say hi!

About the about:blank problem. I am sorry that has happened to you. I know that you will get it worked out with the help from our resident members. They can work wonders with malware and such.

Oh thanks you guys!!! I followed all the instructions and posted my log. I am so happy I found this site. Its basically my fault for the about blank homepage because I think I know where I got it from (zango.com) So now I have to try to fix the problem before the rest of my family kills me for it!! :thumbsup:

Thanks :)I think I just might read some tutorials. I love learning stuff about computers. If I didnt already have a career choice in mind...I wouldn't mind going into a field dealing with computers.

Welcome to BC!
Even if you do not go into a computer related field, you use one every day, and the more you know about computers and computer security, the easier your life will be.
Preventing malware is a lot easier than getting rid of it, but you have to be on your guard constantly. The information you find here will help you keep your computer up and running and more comfortable using it.
Cheers,
John

So very true. I am on the computer everyday. I don't know what I'd do with out a computer.In the past year I've done a lot of research on web design and coding. I am glad to say...I finally got the hang of it. From now on I'll be sure to keep my computer safe. I can admit to some reckless downloading. I have to be careful though, because this computer isn't even a year old yet and I don't want to cause permanent damage.

Thanks for being so friendly everyone! By the way..my name is Mandee (like the store) lol

Hi, mandee.

Sure am happy you found us.
Domestic tranquility is something we all want,
except maybe the folks who design the problems
that envitably find their way onto our PC's.

usually when we need them the least.

Heres something to read.

Well if you have heard of xanga...the online journal community...I have made layouts for that. I recently learned image mapping so I have been working with that. I am really interested in learning more.

I don't know if you guys would like anything I made. I submitted these to the site blogring.net

Click for Hilary Duff layout
Click for Destiny's Child
Click for Tru Calling
and Click for mine

I know they are mostly celebrities and shows but that seems to be what people like...so I make them. Like I said..I don'tknow if they are really any good, because I recently learned this stuff.

Quite impressive sites :thumbsup:

Maybe one day we can trade experiences and techniques. I have been doing some work recently on animations. My signature is one of them, but there are others.

I would be more then happy to do a sig for you.
