Hello,
I cannot get to my homepage in Internet Explorer. It works in firefox, but not in IE. I want to use IE. Anybody have any clues?

Tried hijackthis, spybot, ad-aware and others but it's a blank page. Not about:blank but just blank.

Hosts file?

Any help is appreciated.

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum. Do not fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

You posted a log to be cleaned, or you tried to clean it yourself?

HJT logs, are not something for the amateur to attempt. It takes a lot of training to become proficient at reading these, correctly.
If you attempted this on your own, I suggest you submit a log to the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum, as Grinler suggested
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA

fordman :thumbsup: to BC

This is probably a dumb question, but have you tried going to internet options and resetting your homepage? Maybe you accidentally hit the button to Use Blank as your home page.
There is no justice, there is just us.

Nope, and I had my hijackthis log checked and didn't fix.

It has to be in the hosts file, right?
