Kaspersky Any Tips ?

I have just loaded Kaspersky 2009 free courtesy of Barclays. I am impressed but it seems quite complicated, for example if I run a scan it lists many "detected" threats however these threats seem to be accepted as simply that and I can't find out how to eliminate them.
Any help appreciated

There should be an option to check and delete these, they are probably only cookies and a minor threat if any.

By default, all infected files are subject to disinfection, and if they are potentially infected, they are sent to Quarantine.

Before attempting to treat the object or delete it, Kaspersky Internet Security creates a backup copy and sends it to Backup in case the object needs to be restored or an opportunity arises to treat it.

Select File Anti-Virus under Protection in the main window and click on Open Report.
Select the objects that interest you on the Detected tab and click the Action ? Neutralize all button.
If it is successfully disinfected, it will restored for regular use. If the object cannot be treated, you will be offered to options to delete or skip it. In the latter case, access to the file will be restored. However, this significantly increases the risk of infection on your computer. It is strongly recommended not to skip dangerous objects.

PS Kaspersky 2009

i used the beta when nod ran out for a few days, found it incredibly intrusive. it put all my games downloaders into high risk area, my office documents into low risk. didnt ask my opinon just did it reducing their allowances and crashing my system.
anyway to your question, click help after scan and it will show you links to your 'vulnablities' now this bit got me confused, if you scan again after updating the said program it will throw up the same problems unless you manually delete then from kis after updating the problems. this should get rid of them, there was one problem i had with foxit reader whereas the solution was to update to the version i had?. i reinstalled and still had the problem, and went back to nod.
if you get stuck clicking help links their very useful forum, which proves priceless.

"click help after scan and it will show you links to your 'vulnablities'" should read click detected

I will keep that in mind, but I am beginning to wonder if the whole interface has been changed there seems to be no corrolation between what I have and what people are telling me.

Just seen the 2009 so don;t know if its the same but I bet it is

Thanks I have got that, although one listed as "very Dangerous" is Firefox Unfortunately I clicked on clear list, so I will have to scan again to try "actions" for example if I want to say Firefox is safe, and not to show this again can I do it from there?
