I have been dealing with this for two weeks and it keeps coming back. I have XP Pro, IE 6, Norton Security 2002 - NAV and Firewall. I have run CWShredder, Spyboot, and Adaware. They all fix things, and then either overnight or on reboot, or for just no reason at all, the About:Blank comes back. Here is my latest hijackThis log. I can't see anything that is causing the problem.

Thanks!~

It appears to working okay for now. But I have thought that at least 5 times in the past two weeks. If it returns in the morning, should I repost a new log here in the same thread? Thanks so much for you help!

Yes. Make sure everything is set to run in Msconfig too.
Start/Run & type in Msconfig, go to the startup tab & make sure all there are set to run at startup.

About:Blank came back. Help, please!!!

Before I went to bed I ran Spybot and found two settings for WebDialer

I have done a lot since I last posted. Using reglite, going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows and double clicking on AppInit_Dlls found the .dll that was apparently causing my problem. It was c:\windows\system32\kbdfhnc.dll However it took me a while to delete it. Through the advice of a friend, I checked ownership of the file, and it had no owner. I made myself an owner and was able to delete it.

This morning I had no about:blank. However, I do not trust this 'evil', so I am posting another hijackthis log to see if you think I am clean.

Thanks for responding!

Hi phil_c.

First of all- welcome to Daniweb :).

We ask that members not piggy-back questions on to a thread previously started by another member here in the Viruses, Spyware & other Nasties forum, (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your question there. When you do, please try to give us as much specific info as possible regarding the problem (exact error messages, system specs, etc.).

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:

http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/faq.php?faq=daniweb_faq#faq_rules


Thanks for understanding.

You are running hijackthis from a temporary folder. You need to create a new folder in a permanent directory of your choice, (a folder on the desktop is fine) name the new folder hijackthis and move or unzip hijackthis.exe into that folder.
Once you have done that, rescan with hijackthis and post the new log.
