Hi, Have read upteen threads on this problem and still have the about:blank problem.

Running XP professional. Can`t install service pack 2 as this pop up doesn`t let me run : %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a. It uses it to open a pop up.

Spyware Guard detects the home page change etc........ Disconnected from the internet yet popups still come. Everytime I reboot i have to force rundll32.exe to stop. Looked this up on google and this could be my problem aswell as about:this as it says its more than likely a trojan/virus. This process is always running in task manager. Even when i kill it - it returns itself.

Anyway i have all updated new versions of Adaware, CSW, SpyBot. Ran Spybot - rebooted. Ran CSW rebooted. Ran CSW rebooted, and as mentioned in many threads - here is the hijackthis result.

I have managed to get rid of the pop ups for the time being by using

start spywareblaster
click tools
about:blank appears.
replace about:blank with the path of your prefered start page you have before:like for example http://www.microsoft...
Make the same thing (if they are other entries) with your prefered

from this thread http://www.faqfarm.com/Computer/Virus/19285 very handy - many suggested methods for deleting about:blank.

I also used adaware away and seems to have done the trick. However my main concern is "rundll.32"

RUNDLL.32 - checked google and no real answers on how to get rid of it. I get - your system has performed an illegal operation. I get this every time i reboot. I have to end task every time to get rid of it.

Anyone any suggestions? I will continue to search for solutions in this forum aswell as the internet but any response would be brialliant.

here is my current log

Hope this is correct. Reboot and still working. Fingers crossed. I want to delete this:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sp] rundll32 C:\DOCUME~1\Kenny\LOCALS~1\Temp\se.dll,DllInstall

But don`t have the brass balls as "This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: rundll32.exe is also a process which is registered as the W32.Miroot.Worm." http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/rundll32/

what do i do?

Can someone please assist me - I have tried Avast Anti Virus/CWshredder/Spysubtract/Spywareblaster(which allows me to rename the R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = www.google.co.uk)/adaware/spybot - all up to date versions.

Have also tried reglite - but encounter the problem

tried to follow steps on http://www.akadia.com/services/about_blank_virus.html

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\
CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

I don`t have a Windows folder within CurrentVersion so how can i carry on?

Thought i had rid myself on about:blank. But think its back as you can tell by my log. Pls can someone assist me. I`ve been hunting around google and everywhere else. How do i delete or find this hidden *.dll

I thought i knew a bit about pc`s - clearly i was wrong. Whoever or whatever groups of software guru`s who invented this wee bugger know exactly what they are doing as its even going round our work pc`s in IBM. Re-install windows is what we do in work but i don`t want to do that. Pls help.

what is this : O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sp] rundll32 C:\DOCUME~1\Kenny\LOCALS~1\Temp\se.dll,DllInstall

And these will not go away:
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = www.google.co.uk
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = www.google.co.uk
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = www.google.co.uk

Also this looks dodgy :
