Well, now it just recently came back. I thought it was gone. I ran cws and hjt in safe mode and deleted the stuff i was told to. and then i deleted the sp file, cleared cookies, temp folder, and history. and i ran adaware and deleted a coolweb thing. then change my homepage again and rebooted. I though it was coming back because i keep getting it from the web but i haven't even done anything and it just came back right now.


I just installed spybot and it found 4 things, so i had get rid of them. but does spybot run in the background all the time, so if i end up going to a site that has about:blank it will get rid of it automatically?


here is a log: can i get rid of some of this?

No ,spybot doesn't run in the backgroung ,try these 3 programs , spywareguard rund in the background

After you get it all fixed and things are working good ,Download and install these two programs to help stop Spyware .




Keep Up-to-Date!
The most important key to maintaining a secure computer is keeping your protection up-to-date.

also check how i got infected in the first place .



i can't get rid of about:blank!!! i did what i was supposed to. i started up in safe mode, ran cwshredder, which i just updated so it got rid of the hklm stuff and the sp file. then i ran spybot and got rid of DSOexploit. the i ran adaware, and nothing came up. then I changed my homepage back, deleted cookies and temporary internet files and history. then i restarted. when i first open up ie it's on my homepage but i checked the setting an it's on about:blank again.
