    I havent gotten fully around at trying to do the suggested fix-it instructions for the about blank hijack that has taken over my homepage yet.

    I am sure the instructions I was given here will work.

    I started this new thread, because of something else.

    In my music folder (size 22megs) it just didnt seem as though I had downloaded that much music.

    I open it up, and highlight all the mp3, and they total around 10 megs.

    So, I assume something is fishy, and try to delete it, figuring I can download the music again if I have to.

    It wont delete because "someone is using files there".

    I dont have any media player going. There arent any windows open. I havent listened to an mp3 in a month.

    I restart my computer, and before I do anything else, I delete the music folder to norton protected recycle bin sucessfully.

    What gives? *shrug*

    I restarted my computer, and deleting the folder with a mystery amount of memory seems to have gotten ride of the about blank problem. I did have to return my ie/tools/internet options back to msn of course.

    But no more about blank and the computer is way faster now too.

    I'll post another thread if the problem returns.

    thanks for offering your wonderful services :)
