IE/Firefox problems (not a spyware thread)

  1. So... for one reason or another I need to be using IE (if I want to run windows update, panda online scan, etc), but something very odd is going on. Every time I attempt to pull up a website in IE, it just sits at about:blank, and firefox opens up the page instead. Very bizarre. Needs fixing! Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    John

    All pages display this? Is your current homepage set to about:blank? Try updating it to something else.

    It could be that IE is being HIJACKED…
    I would download HIJACKTHIS and ask the forum for help or you can use ADAWARE (in options make sure it scans the HOSTS file) and have it scan.
