How to remove the objects in Ad-aware?


I read your column about Ad-aware's free program, I installed it, ran it, and it found 107 objects in my computer, 3 in registry keys, and the rest in files. I didn't know what to do, so I placed them in quarintine. Is this the correct thing to do? How do you know what to delete? Are any of these used for any "good" purpose.

Thank you, Dave Maddox

After you scan your pc for objects you don't need to quarintine Just hit next and it will remove all the objects that it scanned and be deleted None are used for good purpose, the whole point is it's getting rid of things that can mess up your computer and give you problems.
