    My homepage keeps defaulting back to a webpage entitled "Search For..."
    The address of this page is "about:blank".
    I've tried adaware se, spybot, and a few other removal tools, and they all seem to work for a short while (usually from a few minutes to about a day) but the "Search For..." homepage always comes back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I ran Hijack This and here is my log. Thanks again.
