    Hi...I have the zestyfind / about-blank bug that is not repaired using ad-aware and would like some help. I've followed the "hijackthis" solution that I found several places on the web and would like someone to help read my log:

    Hi dan,

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

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://www.websearch.com/ie.aspx?tb_id=31
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {8952A998-1E7E-4716-B23D-3DBE03910972} - (no file)

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {339BB23F-A864-48C0-A59F-29EA915965EC} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [slmss] C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss\slmss.exe

    Then reboot, preferably into safe mode and delete:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss <= entire folder

    Is this what it looks like and something you put there?
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Screen Calendar] C:\Program Files\Screen Calendar\scrcal.exe -m

    Regards,

    Pieter
