Ok, let's see
I am having an issue where my homepage reverts to about:blank even after changing it to something else under tools/internet options.

Checked system with:
Ad-aware (current ref file) - nothing
Spybot (current) - nothing
Bazooka - nothing
Run Trend Micro House Call - nothing
SAV Corp Edition - nothing
CWShredder 1.56.2 - nothing
Hijackthis 1.97.7 - log below

Up to date on all Windows Updates
Still can not figure the problem.

Here is a current log from Hijackthis (Note: I did not fix R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank on purpose.) Even after removing it, it returns after a reboot.

Run HJT again and check:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Reset your home page to whatever you want it to be.

Go to tools, internet options, programs and click "reset web settings".
