I am going nuts trying to figure this one out. I am trying to clean up a system Windows 98 IE6.0 and have the following problem:
I boot my system and go into IE and look at the home link it is About
:Blank In control pannel I add in http://www.google.com
and apply to save it for the home link. Then I go out and invoke IE and get this About
:Blank Now this About
:Blank brings up a search page with a lot of crap in it and also 2 windows talking about Spy Ware... This page fools people into hitting ok to make it stop BUT we all know if you hit ok your screwed. Well my brother must of hit it some time a while back.
I used spyBot today and removed over 200 things in his system, Downloaded a new upto date IE and when I reboot same thing happens.
Does anyone know where it's comming from? I deleted all history, cleared all bookmarks and just general cleanup... still having the problem. If I change the link to Google in control panel... and I then invoke IE you then get About
:Blank... then if I type the google address and hit go I am ok until I invoke IE again.
