finally this was very helpful. it is gone. Now i have 2 other problems.
ISTsvc.exe. I have been jumbling around with it, and finally got a symantec
(NA) program and ran it on the computer. It stated that IST was removed from
the computer. I seem to still have the problem. damn spyware. I am presently
rerunning spyware doctor and ad-aware, then i am going to run the program to
remove it again. Hoping it will take it out for sure.
Now about:Blank is still showing up and this is part of the ISTsvc.exe
hijack. So i am thinking the program didnt do it completely.
secondly I am running roadrunner cable modem and since messing around with
it so much, I am now unable to connect to the internet via my browser.
Updates are able to connect, so the connection is active. any ideas?
