    Then download and run About:Buster http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html

    Then search for and delete ALCFGD.DLL, sp.dll, and UMSLRES.DLL.

    I am still ever grateful to "gotrootdude" for solving my problem, but I am scared to death that about.blank will hijack my home page again. Can I go into "Tools", "Internet Options" and "Security" and restrict that site and prevent it from happening again?
