I have a problem with my friend's IE. He had some viruses but i removed them. But when I start IE even that in the address bar the address is about:blank a page is loaded(online and ofline too). I've deleted all the cookies. How can I repair this?

Thats you default homepage!!.Its a blank page thats all.Its got nothing to do with any
virus or something.You can change your homepage by going to the internet options.

Use Spybot S&D or Ad-aware and do a search for spyware. Sounds like a browser hijack. Should be pretty easy to resolve once any and all spyware has been removed.

Download Ad-Aware, Spybot, and CWSShredder. Update your Anti-Virus, if you don't have one, GET ONE!
Install and web update all 4 programs, but don't scan. Reboot the box into "Safe Mode", press F8 a few times before windows loads. Scan with all 4 programs mentioned, do what the software tells you.
If you can't update the software, download the updates on a seperate box and bring them over on a CD.
After those scans, you'll probably have better access to the internet. Go to http://www.housecall.trendmicro.com and scan from there.
And then tell us whats up
