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 />
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 />
So if you change your homepage to msn or something and it keeps gonig to about blank, its been hijacked.
