I've run a scan on my system using NoAdaware and got 111 problems!!

Is it safe to delete them? I've posted the log on to the support site at Lavasoft, but the wait is quite long!!

Any suggestions welcomed

If you mean Ad-aware click here then you can safely delete them all.

It's deifinitley NoAdware!

It's seems above board as they're Lavasoft!?

Vog just clicked on your link and it's the same company - the icon my desktop is definitlry that though.

Some are registry items - Is it safe to just delete them?

I think that you may have. Run Ad-aware and see what it finds and delete all.

To other readers, DO NOT click on knobler's "click here".

Sorry VoG!

One last question now that I've deleted it and loaded ad-aware, Is it safe to delete all malware etc.. without causing any damage?

Thanks

There really is no reason to apologise.

You can safely delete anything that Ad-aware finds.

Tried installinf ad aware as suggested and got the below error message when I tried to run it>

Exception EReadError in Module AD-AWARE.EXE bei 00021 FOB.
