To Hell and Back
Both of my computers are now fully functioning. In the past month I lost both of my PC's. They both fell victim to Adware and/or spywhere.
Noted privacy software expert Steve Gibson of Gibson Research explains: "Spyware
is any software (that) employs a user's Internet connection in the background
(the so-called 'backchannel') without their knowledge or explicit permission.
Silent background use of an Internet 'backchannel' connection must be preceded
by a complete and truthful disclosure of proposed backchannel usage, followed by
the receipt of explicit, informed consent for such use. Any software
communicating across the Internet absent of these elements is guilty of
information theft and is properly and rightfully termed: Spyware."
The people who make spyware should be banned to hell for all eternity.
First my home PC. Here I was stupid. I wasnt using protection. No Adaware No Norton anti-virus. Nothing. I got taken over by the dreaded About:blank homepage hijacker. Anybody who has experienced About:Blank knows what I've gone through. Well stubborly I refused to reload my operating system. It's to irritating and I have to much free software that I dont want to have to reload. 3 weeks it took me to irradicate the parasite. It was all over my registry, and I had 16 startup parasites that created more and more parasites every time I rebooted.
Why am I telling you all this? Hope.
It IS possible to irradicate About:blank without formating your hard drive. all you need is Remove about:blank Buddy from here. Scosoft support Dan Smith really really helped me out.
BTW My pc at work we just reformatted. It's so nice to have a nice clean PC.
I feel your pain, brother:
