Recently, I was hit hard by the CWS/about:blank viruses. During this I was having problems opening some of my hotmail. It seemed somewhat random in terms of which I could or could not open. I then downloaded SpySweeper and ran AboutBuster, Remove.exe and HiJackThis.

While these viruses are now gone, I cannot open any hotmail nor can I access certain sercure pages. I run Windows 2000 on a custom PC.

Did I remove something that I needed by accident?

This is a wild guess but maybe it will help. If there is no error or security message, perhaps one of the annoyance fixers added a popup stopper to your browser.

I've seen that before...if you're on 2000 or XP try downloading the Windows Script here. I think it fixed that before.

What version of IE do you have (Help-->About)? You can use Start-->Run-->msinfo32 and expand Internet Settings-->Internet Explorer-->File Versions and see if any of the files show up with <file missing> and search the file name on Google to see if you can download an IE service pack that has those files in it.

Thanks for the help. I did all this to no avail. I then called MS and I had a free help session so the tech walked me through an IE fix. I'm all better now.
Thanks again. :cheesy:
