    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
