    Hi, Really need some help here. I've got some Trojans on my pc running Windows ME. They are the start page trojans (sp.dll) that keep setting the home page on IE to: About Blank. How the heck do I get rid of them. Many thanks, Gavin o_O

    Hi Gavin I moved your post from the TDS3 dedicated forum to here as it will probably get more attention in this forum. :)

    First try these manual instructions courtesy of Pest Patrol:
    http://www.pestpatrol.com/pestinfo/s/sp_hijacker.asp#Detection and Removal

    If that works fine but also try the following to make sure your are spyware free:

    Run AdAware from www.lavasoft.de or Spyboy Search & Destroy http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

    If all the above fail try this method from here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=50662

    HTH Pilli.
