Before trying the registry edit/file deletion method suggested above, download, install, update and run Ad-Aware SE. It is available at

I have seen different malware that sets home page to about.blank. Ad-Aware will remove some. If it doesn't, then try remedy above.

I recommend you use Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&amp regularly in any case. Both are available at

do a search on google for "about:blank"
I found about 274,000 hits.
some sites say that they will scan your free for free. some programs do cost

After you get it cleaned install Ad_Aware, Spy-Bots and update date them weekly , also your virus checker. Also install ZoneAlarm
they will get most of the malware
new ones are coming out daily.
no one program can can fo it alone.

good luck
