Yes Ive seen some topics but this one is driving me insane. (Well whats not these days:p )
My IE always ALWAYS defaults to about:blank. Then it loads a search site. I am so ****ing disgruntled you will not believe. I ran ad-aware. found some stuff deleted it. IT CAME BACK. Ran Nortons Enterprise Edition, found a trojan and deleted it. That didnt help. I went into the Reg and whacked some stuff ..That didnt help. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh:mad: . I wish the death penalty is issued for *******s who invest there time and waste our precious oxygen for crap like this. Help oh wonderful memebers of the board. Some suggestions please.:)
No one's mentioned SpyBot Search and Destroy yet.

Regardless, don't worry about the about:blank entries in AdAware, for some folks AdAware has been picking that up as a possible hijack attempt. It's not.

You need to delete CoolWebSearch. Let AdAware and also the aforementioned CWS shredder.

Post a HijackThis report.

Did you try using Pest patrol, Bazooka Adware and spyware scanner, spysweeper, and also did you try going under the add/remove programs functions to make sure that there isn't anything listed there that shouldn't be?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
