    No I can access my e-mail - it's while I am trying to access it that the words about blank flashes across the bottom of the screen. I am concerned cos my home page was hijacked by about blank a couple of years ago.  - thanks

Ok as ultimitloozr say. Its an IE, when you set your web browser to open in blank, it will appear in web browser "about:blank". and no web page is active. Its settings could be found in internet option under Control panel toggle the switches to find it.

But if you are still in hesitation about it. Try to go to Xoftspy web site under Paretologic.Inc. If I remember it right they have some topic regarding this. Just read their blog about it. Or key in this problem of yours in their search bar.

    I actually use the program they use. Hijackthis, and the other seems to me same name or actually they are the same, I used Reg****** Li**. I will not announce the exact name since it still not been block by some virus maker, even it actually invaded the system. I can access the registry while the windows registry editor is block.


    Hope this will help you.

About:blank is a cheater way of opening a blank homepage when you open up a web browser. Apparently your web browser is set to open up a blank page. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I even use that on occasion as I normally do not want to go to a specific website every time I open up a browser window. You can change this at any time by changing the Internet Options (for IE) or using Tools -> Options in other web browsers.

By the way, some web browsers support other about: pages as well including configuration options in Firefox using about:config.

I can't get emails to come up ,about blank appears bottom of page and my page stays blank,tells how many emails I have .They will not show up


The problem is not caused by a virus, trojan, or anything like that! Yahoo have been making changes to the appearance of their home page and also their e-mail. As a result, the screen resolution of 800 x 600 on many PCs will no-longer allow you to sign in. Try changing your screen resolution to 1024 x 768

Can't access my yahoo mail. showing blank page


This usually happens when a trojan horse/virus has infiltrated your system. Spyware too has things that hate yahoo. Have you tried running your system's virus protection to see what is on there? Have you re-booted it yet? Also, go online and see if there are any updates for your virus protection since the last time it scanned your computer. I hope that this helps.
