    I have been unable to rid my system of the about:blank redirect. I have just run the latest versions of AdAware and CWShredder.

    Here is my log file:

    Hi Itachi18,

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {9056A11F-5EA6-4A67-BDE9-8D3C7C453DAC} - c:\sysfwb\9887627485\iefwbar.dll
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B4227615-2D7D-49A1-88D1-1F5193060CA1} - (no file)

    O16 - DPF: {92F02779-6D88-4958-8AD3-83C12A16ADC7} - file://C:\WINDOWS\system32\SearchBar\zpprf1sh.exe

    Please download and run CWShredder
    Use the Fix button and follow the instructions provided by the program.

    Then reboot and delete:
    c:\sysfwb\9887627485 <= the entire folder

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi

    I followed the instructions, and the about:blank didn't appear... for a while. When it came back I ran AdAware, and then CWShredder again (which didn't pick up anything). This is the log file that I got after running HijackThis. Also, the c:\sysfwb\9887627485 has not reappeared.

    You will have to update Windows and IE to at least stand a chance to permanently get rid of it.
