No not pulling your leg. I had only used the buttons Use Current or Use Default until about:blank hit the scene. After the first reply from TC, I did change my Norton settings on the new box to allow the change so that I could see what happened and a blank page came up with about:blank in the address bar and status bar at the bottom. Oatmeal coloured background. Since all I've read is about the fixes, I still don't know how it's transported. I am now assuming that whoever wrote this saw that in the setting for Use Blank and named the hijacker after it. I had been under the impression if I clicked Use Blank, it would be blank. Anti-virus programmes let you know beforehand not to open, whereas programmes like Spybot tell you after the fact. These .dll hijackers, malware, adware etc are like illegal immigrants and I'd like to try and stop their entry rather than try and find them and purge them after they get in.

Overstuffed bloating is the reason I got the new box. I couldn't download the latest and when Adobe took over Macromedia they got more aggressive. Every time I went to Kitco I had to click six times or so before I got through. Good thing I don't trade minute by minute futures. :) So I listened to the hype about the duos for a minute or two from the salesmen before cutting in to say that I still have my first computer with two processors and it's almost thirty years old. Z80 and 8080 with a screaming 300 baud and a "digital" audio tape drive. Where are all those tight codewriters who could do so much with 64K? Had to find out what was new about the new ViiV and LIVE stuff too. The two words marketing ploy could have sufficed for the explanations I listened to from the salesmen.

On Vista, or 9.1.1, I'll do the search and research. If 95 was 4.1.1, 98 5.1.1, 2000 was either 6.1.1 or 7.1.1 because there was a disaster in there somewhere whose name I forget and XP is 8.1.1 Fortuitous perhaps? You're thinking it'll crash and burn. Maybe if I don't use it I'll forget it's name in a few years as well. LOL The disks are shipping by mail so it will be mid-Feb before I have it and I won't instal until I'm ready. I thought about a MAC but couldn't believe what I got for the money. They are almost throwaways now.

Regards

Bob
