Thanks guys for your input. I too LawFive was "hijacked" by "about
:blank" this time. I've gotten it before and usually CW Shredder will take care of it. But not this time. The malware has evolved!
I also downloaded Microsoft's Beta version of spyware removal. I like it. I would recommend it to anyone.
