    Jey,

    I have always deleted all the files recommended from spybot S&D and
    adaware...however, it is not always the best solution for everyone.
    There are file that could be recommended for deletion that could well
    be harmless and necessary for your software. One example I can think
    of is BackWeb, which is used by a number of spyware programs, but is
    also used by some legitimate programs too. Your best bet, if you are
    not familiar with how to interpret the findings, is to quarantine them
    and see how your system performs without them. If everything operates
    the way it should, then delete the quarantined files. It's always
    better to be safe and BACKUP your files when removing things you don't
    completely understand.

    Well, do you also delete files marked as "directory", and "registry
    change"(DSO Exploit)?? I use Spybot S&D, but am too afraid to delete
    the registry change/directory files - then again I am clueless about
    all this.
