    I am using Windows XP, when I open IE, a page opens up that I don't want....
    it says about:blank. I tried running Adware to remove the problem, but every
    time I run it few objects appear, I remove those objects. And then again I
    run Adware, again some objects appear, I delete. This happens all the time
    as if the objects are not being removed or they being produced each time. I
    don't undersand. I also tried defaulting MSN as the web page , but inspite a
    page opens up saying "about:blank".

    Pls help. Thanks

    This may help you.

    Also, using IE on XP's SP2 may help to control things.

    Seek out a program known as "AboutBuster". It targets this kind of spyware
    specifically, and may help.
