I'm infected with Adware.Iwon.A. I've run it through every local virus scan I have (BitDefender, Nod32), every legit spyware scanner I have (which is um, all of them more or less), and all the online scanners I was able to find. Yet, it persists.

I've gone through removal instructions on various sites, but none of the Iwon files or reg entries seem to exist, so I'm totally stuck. Any ideas?

If you need any more info, please ask. I posted a hijackthis log (along with 2 other logs) on a thread in the hijackthis forum under "I know something is awry," should be near the top, or on the first page. BitDefender is driving me absolutely nuts about blocking Iwon every 2 seconds (literally).

Thanks for any help! Now excuse me while I drown in my madness... ;)

... same issue with mywebsearch
