    Ad-Aware

    I just installed Lavasoft Ad-aware & ran the scan. It flagged 325 possible threats. Is it generally safe to delete all of them? Because I'm not sure what they are. THANKS!

    If they are listed as "Negligible Objects", it isn't really necessary to do anything about them (but it won't do harm either). It they are listed as "Critical Objects", you should certainly let AdAware do its thing. Clicking on the Quarantine button will disable the objects, but not delete them permanently. If you find that AdAware quarantined something you need, you can always retrieve it from quarantine.

    I recommend running Spybot-S&D as well. It catches some malware that Ad-aware misses.
