Can Someone Help with About:Blank
I've been on the internet searching for information about "About:Blank" which is on both my desktop and laptop. I have WinXP on the Dell 4500 and WinVista on the HP laptop. NIS2010 on both and updated daily. I've never seen About:Blank listed by NIS as a problem. It is listed as the only entry on my IE8 Internet Tools General Page under Use Blank. I see it slowing down the loading process on my home page and other pages, even Microsoft Update.
I can't see where it is doing anything particularly, but some say it's malware and substitutes ads. I'm really tired of waiting for About:Blank.
Can someone help with this? Should I try to get rid of it? I can't tell where I picked it up and it may return. And, why isn't NIS catching it? Appreciate your help.
