    I have run a full scan with the latest version of Ad-aware several times. It identifies problems but is unable to delete them successfully.

    The about:blank page also opens sometimes when I open new websites or new pages within them along with a series of popups telling me that my computer that be infected with spyware.

    Please can you tell me how I can remove the problem?
