I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me clean up my hijacked computer. Every time I open IE 6.0 a generic search page is the default homepage with the words "About:Blank" in the URL. The search button also displays a bunch of search links. I also get numerous random pop-ups letting me know that my computer has spyware installed (of course, they put it there). Anhow, I've cleared the registry of any references to the "About:Blank", but they keep coming back whenver IE is opened or closed. This is the action I have taken so far.

1) Run Norton Anti Virus with latest definitions. No viruses
2) Run SpyBot S&D, Clean
3) Run Adware 6.0 - It did fine three objects referencing coolsearch and I did delete those references. Still did not fix the problem above.
4) Ran Hijack This with the following log.

Any help would be appreciated.

Download dllfix.exe from http://downloads.subratam.org/dllfix.exe . Create a folder on your desktop & click on the exe you downloaded. Direct the install into the new folder.
You will see there are two more folders inside and two BAT files. Run start.bat & select option 1 for the report. Once the search is complete a ".txt" file should pop up with the name "Output.txt". Keep it. You will see there is a random dll named there if found. Run the start.bat again after dll found. Run option 2 and choose correct option in submenu. Option 1 if the dll file was found, option 2 if the file wasn't found.
If no random named file was found & you run option 2, your system should reboot in about 15 seconds. Once it has rebooted & done it's cleaning up, download & update Adaware if you don't already have it. Run it & remove all it finds.
Run start.bat again choosing option 1 & post the log it creates along with another HJT log.
