about:blank

i have been using McAfee Internet Security for about 6 months, it has never detected any problems but i now have about:blank appearing alot, and the internet seems to be alot slower. A full scan finds nothing.

How can i remove this about:blank (virus)?

Re: about:blank

Hi James ,

The about:blank stuff what you are talking about could be the default or the blank settings of your Internet browser for your homepage .

Just open Internet explorer. Go to Tools -> Internet Options.

There you might see a column for homepage and under that you might see 3 options:  Use Current, Use Default and Use Blank

You might be using the blank one. Click on Use Current and try changing the homepage to google.com/yahoo.com.

Hope it helps.

regards,

Anand
