3. Click Apply then OK
4. Restart IE
5. Reset your home page.

I am very confused. Why would I want to do this?

In either case, I did what you suggested. It did not even go away. Every time I open IE, "about:blank" is there.

Can you give me directions on how to remove the hidden dll file, like you did before. That seemed to have solved the problem for the longest time.

please help :cry:
