Hello Carl

I use a program called   Adaware Away http://www.adawareaway.com it is a 
free trial and will remove about:blank hijacker.. it expires after 15 days 
though unless you buy the update package... I'm too cheap... I just 
redownload it about once a week and keep it on my repair disk. Check out
