I just had a 2 week long bout of spyware, malware etc and successfully removed it and got my PC back to normal~~ or so it seemed. I have run Sbybot, ad-aware, Hijack This, and have added WinPatrol and spyware blaster to my programs.

My iwon.com homepage keeps "forgetting" my log in name and every time I visit the page I have to log in again. It seems like it won't retain/keep my cookies? My other pages that I visit repeatedly, like Geekstogo, NYTimes, Bank of america, and some other message boards have no problem and I visit each time and am logged on.

Any ideas on how to correct this? thanks.

Hate to break it to you, but iWon was probably responsible for much of the spyware that was on your system. The spyware programs you've installed are preventing iWon from installing it's tracking cookie on your computer. A tracking cookie works with partner sites to track your movement on the Internet.
