    any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You. Also when I scan with Hijackthis and remove the reference to selfsearch.biz the about:blank page loads for a second and then it just goes back to the selfsearch.biz page again. Any ideas? I got rid of the about:blank once before. I also allready removed microsofts java VM so how could I have gotten it again?

    again... thanks in advance.
