Can someone please help me to clean my system and get rid of "about blank". It seems I have an infected system because I now have these annoying pop-ups anbout "spyware alert" - and then my home page switches over to some "about blank" home page. I have tried running hijackthis and removing items that I felt may be contributing to the problem, however every time I reboot, the problem is right back again.

Attached is the file from hijackthis. Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Add/remove programs remove - WINDOWS TASKAD and LIMEWIRE

Then get the current version of HJT - http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
