Actually, the About:blank page is just another page (although it's
hidden inside a DLL, so it's not so simple to fix), and some hijackers
replace it, so the "bunch of other stuff" isn't even needed, so that
the address field looks right, but what you're getting is definitely
not a blank page. Apparently something slightly different is happening
in your case.
