    My internet explorer homepage is always turning to "Blank". If I set it to
    anything else, it turns back to "Blank". I understand there is some spywhere
    got installed, but I am not able to remove it. I have tried Adaware and
    Spybot. But no help. Does anyone know any other freeware that will solve
    this problem?

    I am not able to login to hotmail or gmail as well.

  2. Download "Hijack This!" from here:

    Make sure any Explorer/IE windows are closed, and then do a scan. It will
    list all the IE-modifying registry entries. *Not* all of them are malicious
    or even unwanted, but it should be pretty obvious if you know what you're
    looking for (in this case, about:blank). Remove the offending entries, and
    hopefully your problem will be resolved. If not, then there's probably still
    some spyware running in the background. If this is the case, run hijack
    this in safemode, and also do another scan with ad-aware and spybot.

    Try BHO Demon and CWShredder. They might help.

    the About:Blank virus is a good one.
