    about:blank is how browsers show a blank page when you set the homepage to a blank page.

    If you are running Windows on your machine, it could possibly be a virus called "about:blank" which was very prevalent some years ago. As you described it creates a blank home page and is very difficult to get rid of. There's masses of info on Google.

    On the other hand, if you are running Mac OS, I must have misunderstood you! :)
