I read through several previous posts about removing About: blank, but the names referenced were not present on my machine. If anyone could review my log and let me know how to fix this menace I would greatly appreciate it.

I have used Spy Catcher, Pest Patrol, Spybot S&D, and the Microsoft Anti-Spyware software and none have gotten rid of it so far.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Here is my log:

Also, can anybody tell me if my browser is not secure with About: Blank on it? Will it send any information or damage programs, or does it just hijack the homepage? I have it blocked right now so I just have to keep clicking the warnings off.
