Hi. My local page used to keep changing to C:\Windows\System32\blank.htm, even though utilities like 'about buster' couldn't find any trace of the infection. I checked recommended places in the registry, and used a process utility to see if I could find DLLs which were cited on various security forums, without success. I then realised that Spybot had C:\Windows\System32\blank.htm as a permitted browser page under 'Tools,' and removed all such refs. So far, so good. The changes to my local page have stopped, but Giant AS still has C:\Windows\System32\blank.htm as the default IE setting (I've corrected 'restore settings'). This shows up under Advanced Tools-System Explorers-IE settings, and Advanced Tools-Browser Hijack Restore. I've tried everything (resetting Spywareblaster & Spywareguard settings, etc.), but can't change those default IE settings. Can anyone help, please? I'm thinking that I need to change IE settings, but I tried that somehow (can't remember how), without success. I'll google that now. Thanks very much.
