PS I am a home user with limited knowledge about the workings of programs.
Thanks Katy

I am not sure if bwgo is a genuine program or files caused by virus. In my research it shows that those files are put by virus in temporary folders.

Try these and check if they would be removed

 Remove temporary internet files, folders and cookies
Also remove windows Temp files going to

1) Start --> run --> typein:  %systemroot%/temp
2) Start  --> run --> typein: %temp%

Can you check if they are all gone

I was installing Norton Antivirus 2005, the directions told me, if I was unsure about deleting temp files I should make a copy of them in "My Documents" which I did.  The program was installed, ran the virus scan and no viruses were found.  When I tried to delete the bwgo files today they seem to stay there or change the numbers and letters behind bwgo.

This is what I received from ee solutions:

katyflan,

Looks like there is an issue with search in EE now.. I am facing that same issue

Have you looked at my first suggestion and done all that .
Also download Stinger from here http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
and install , run it.. It should report of any latest virus you have if any

Also run online virus scanner
