    Hello.
    I am new here but would like to ask for some help.

    OS is windows 98se

    I noticed it was very slow going to web sites I ran CW shredder and it told me I was infected with a variant of the cool web search so I had it fix it.

    At no time did anything hijack my browser and my system is running much faster.

    But I notice when I go to certain web sites It says (About Blank) just before connecting to the site.

    I have ran Adaware 6 and Spybot but they do not find anything.

    There must be some remnant somewhere.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you,

    Duncan.

    In my opinion,
    I would download and run a reg cleaner. There might be a link left somewhere in your reg that causes it to load that page.

    I recommend: Registry Tuneup

    Good Luck

    Thank you very much for your quick reply.
    And I will certainly give that program a try.

    The funny thing is I always get the page I want it is just before it loads it flashes About Blank just above Start and then the page I am requesting opens.

    Thank You
    Duncan.

    Hi Duncan, ;)

    It sounds like you maybe have some residual problems from the CWS cleaning, CW Shredder did.

    Your best bet would go to Castle Cops and have a Hijack This Expert review your HJT Log file. Read the FAQ before posting, explain the problems you are experiencing, just as you have here ... and some one will walk/guide you through the process. Don't worry they will provide you a links to all the software you may need for any further removal. And the service is free. ;)

    Do NOT attempt to use Hijack This by yourself, as almost all of what is displayed is need to operate your PC.


    HTH, ;)

    Steve

    Glad you got it sorted out, Duncan. :) I suggest you Read -> How did I get infected in the First Place? <- it'll give you a little instruction on Securing your PC and preventing infection. If you have any questions, just start a new thread and ask away, you'll get all the help you need. ;)

    Heh, I have the same that Dunc is experiencing.
    I kept thinking about:blank is after me or something.
    But oh well...I'll try some Reg cleaner and see if it helps.

    And...Mr.P, I can't help but tell that I like Your..erhm..."accent".;) :D
    It is always so fun to read your posts. Not to mention that they are very informative. Stay the way you are.
