Ad aware threw up the following two registry entries which are listed as DATA MINERS and are to do with microsoft media player. Presumably it is some type of spyware put in by microsoft. Is it safe to let ad aware delete them or should I leave them alone? HKEY_users:DEFAULT\software\microsoft\mediaplayer\player\settings HKEY_current_user:software\microsoft\mediaplayer\player\settings it is described as - "Media Player Unique ID" Thanks for any advice
I deleted mine two weeks back, and have not noticed any adverse effect so far! They are still in my recycle bin, just in case. j.
Me too, and I emptied the bin!
every time i run adaware, anything found is binned, then emptied from recycle bin.i always have system restore if i cock it all up
Data Miner's title should tell you all you need to know...:-)Just delete them as they are of no value to you but are to others who put them there.
As others have said just delete them, by the way they are not from microsoft but are downloaded by many sites, I no people like to blame M$ for lots of things but they are not guilty this time.
Just delete the lot I have never had any problems.As mikef. says it is only downloaded from other places or copies of disk you may have borrowed.
