    I followed the instructions you listed on using ad-ware (6.0 personal) and the hijack this program. I have used the standard method in tools to clean delete cookies and clear history but the one item will not delete from my address bar. Here is my hijack this file. Please help me with what item to delete to keep my home page from changing periodically.

    Then reboot and delete:
    C:\Program Files\iWon <= entire folder

    Thank you very much for your help Pieter. I did you what you posted and that seems to have done the trick. This is a great forum.

    The only thing I couldn't complete was deleting the Iwon folder. Used the search utility and could not find it anywhere. I did, however, find a desktop setup file for Iwon that is a link to that web page. I cannot find that particular file though.

    Thank you again!

    I was wondering if that folder could have survived AdAware. :D
    It was probably gone all along.
    Toss out the link on your desktop. Iwon is adware: http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/Aornum.html
