Extermionate about:blank removal ?

Recommended Posts

Guest AL

I just installed and ran Exterminate in the Windows XP Safe Mode to eliminate the about:blank homepage hijacker and/or the Myzor worm. 27 files were found and completely removed as evidenced by second running of Exterminate. The popups are gone. However, my IE6 homepage cannot be reset from about:blank.

 

Did Exterminate miss something or does IE6 or the registry need further repair ?

This is the first report I've had about this issue. Can you change the homepage and it just changes back to about.blank, or is the option to change it grayed out?

Yes, I change the homepage and it just changes back to about:blank. I tried disabling all antivirus and firewalls but no help.

I think this is part of the SmitFraud family, IG

 

I think you're right but I'm hoping for an easy fix.... :unsure:

 

My next step is to direct him to the virus and spyware forum.
