Should Malware be deleted?

I've just run Ad-Aware for the first time and it found something I've not heard of before - Malware.

When any of my utilities find stuff in the registry, like in a hotkey, I am reluctant to delete it just to be on the safe side. The thing is, Ad-Aware keeps coming up with this one.

Can it go or should I just keep ignoring it?

Definitely if it is in the registry, It is crap, get rid of it.

in adaware go to settings/general and tick automaticaly quarintine before delete box


you can always restore it from items in quarintine by clicking restore then.
