I don't know what this really is...but whenever I load a web page, it goes to the site for a few seconds then changes to a blank page that says "about: blank". Any ideas or help on how to get rid of that....please?!

Hi and welcome to TSG :)

It sounds like spyware

Go here and download Hijack This: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

Make sure you download it to a permanent folder of your creation
Once downloaded, launch the program

Hit Scan, then Save Log
Open the log you just saved
Copy and paste the log into this thread

Do not attempt to fix anything yet
Someone will analyze it for you
