Hi<br />
I just bought a new laptop and when I open IEXPLORER It opens on About<b></b>:Blank and the brower is not responding.Its getting annoying.<br />
Is about blank a Spyware?Did it came with the PC?<br />
Thanks

about<b></b>:blank is an internal browser page that shows nothing. You can change it to whatever. In IE you can type: about<b></b>:**** and it'll show the words ****. Well, you used to be able to.

No, it is not spyware. It is just the default page that IE shows when you have nothing else set. If you browser is not responding then you have a problem and it has nothing to do with the about<b></b>:blank page.

No its not a spyware. It's a feature of an Internet Browser. The use is that it shows a blank page. Just change it if it bothers you. Go to Internet Options in Your control panel for IE or go to Tools > Options for firefox.

About<b></b>:Blank is actually also a Hijack. The controller will set your about<b></b>:blank automatically in able to screw with it, I had a problem once where i was hijacked and constantly got about<b></b>:blank, i had to reformat.<br />
<br />
So if you change your homepage to msn or something and it keeps gonig to about blank, its been hijacked.
