    Ok, I've tried to traverse my way through the long thread about how to fix this, unfortunately I'm really not that educated currently in looking around my actual computer.

    I do know I have an IE hijacker, the common "about:blank" hijacker that's oh-so-annoying. I've run Spybot and Ad-aware 6.0 and just tried Spywareblaster, but got the damaged message.

    My hijackthis log looks like this:

    So now I need a some really obvious and literal and step-by-step directions as to what exactly I need to do to get rid of this evil trojan hijacker.

    Thanks a lot in advance and I'm very sorry for my ignorance(we all have to learn somewhere!).
