What the hell is going on lately?

This spyware is getting more malicious and near impossible to get rid of.

I have AdAware and Spybot. My Browser has been hijacked by about.blank. Every time I change it back to comcast it goes back to about.blank. WTF??

How do I get rid of that?

Download CWshredder. Do a google for it. It is the program you are looking for ;)

its getting worse becuase the older ones are too easy to get rid of. thus, they dont function...
when things dont function, you buy/build better ones

having it stuck on about:blank is the best i have heard of


get SpyWareBlaster...there is a link within Spybot's Immunize section
