    Angry Homepage

    A spyware may have creeped into my system. My homepage always points to "about:blank", and I can't get rid of it. Can anyone help!!

    Grab CWShredder and Ad-Aware from my signature and see if they fix your problem.

    THat nailed a friends workplace computers. Then again he said it was a matter of time since they have no AV or firewall on their server. Their "IT" dept only knows how to turn computers on and how to load a program. They apparently are to cheap to hire someone to clean their system up and are opting to reformat the whole system (30 or 40 computers throughout the shop).

    That's really said, considering literally thousands of different spyware can cause that and it's usually incredibly simple to fix.
