    I'm working on a computer that is running XP.

    When I would open up Internet Explorer, some web pages would be blank. For example, Windows update was blank, but MSN.com was not. Aol.com appeared normal, but in mail the address book appeared blank, etc.

    I ran spybot and adaware and it found a bunch of stuff. Then ran hijack this and it looked clean. Was able to get onto Windows Update. Updated to IE 7. After update, the runonce page came up and it was just plain blue. Now unable to get back on Update.

    Went into registry and took out the "runonce" to try and bypass and that did not work. I can go to other websites, ie. I type in msn.com and everything looks normal.

    Everytime I reopen IE, the runonce page is there - but it is blank. Any suggestions of how to reset or what to do next?

    I got the RunOnce off - but the Windows Update site is still not visible. Any suggestions for this?
