Ad-Aware 2007 Problem with Ignore list

Hi,
I have updated my Ad- Aware to Ad-Adware 2007.
I ran a scan and it detected a MRU Object.
Since the programme was new to me I have placed the 'infection' in the Ignore list, whereas it may have been preferable to put it in the 'Quarantine area.
Is there any way I can transfer it or should I delete and 'hope for the best'
Any suggestions please

Most Recently Used (MRU) items are simply the list of programs or documents which you have recently accessed, similar to the list of recently used documents in MS Office Word for example.

Some people view them as a privacy threat, others as a useful way to access recently used files and documents.

AdAware is merely erring on the safe side and viewing them as a privacy threat - nothing to worry about.
If you run CCleaner before running Adaware that would clear your MRU objects beforehand.
