Address bar shows about:blank
Everything I find about this is from several years ago. But, I think I'm seeing similar behavior when I click on some website page links. The page goes blank and the address bar shows about:blank. This is with IE10 on Win7 64bit SP1 and all updates. Eventually, I find a way to get to the page, so I was only mildly annoyed. But, it was odd enough that I started to worry. I run ESS v7 as my realtime protection. I ran Malwarebytes quickscan which found nothing. I'm now running a full scan. I normally have ESS set to do a deep scan on Saturday night anyway.
I'm careful (my wife would say obsessive) about following safe internet practices. Still ESS has blocked an occasional site because some malware script was running in a banner ad, so, I won't be so naive as to think I couldn't be infected! :huh:
I guess there are 2 things.
1) Has anyone experienced this recently?
2) A heads-up that this could be rearing its head again.
