How do I get rid of about blank?

Asked by sneakatoke420 (46points) June 19th, 2010

There’s some sort of hacker/virus program that has infested my computer, and I need to know how to get rid of it before it gets any worse. Is there some sort of way I can wipe it out?

About:blank is just a preference for your home page in your browser, not a virus.

Theres a program that is called about blank that is messing with my computer. I know about the preference, but this isnt it.

Kill the process and run an AV scan.

I think it is hidden, because I don’t see it in the processes, and how do I run an AV scan?

Do you have an anti-virus program installed? If not, go get one and run it.

I do. And I just did a scan, and the only things that were detected were cookies.
