    Im a current user of Adware but just for a change, I've decided to use Spybot search a destroy. For some reason,it found all these stuff that i have no clue where to begin.
    Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Be very very careful spybot will remove tons of stuff you need! I tried it and it was too scary. And I know what most of the stuff was. The new adaware is what I'm using, again.

    Yeah, I still use Adware(New version and build). Spybot did find some new stuff though(besides the stuff i need) like a couple dialers and Alexa. I only removed those but i have no clue what to do with the rest.
    Thanks for the reply!

    They are mainly just a collection of "Most Recenty Used" (MRUs) entrys, they are not a specific threat to your privacy but some users like to remove such things.

    You may want to check out MRU Blaster by JavaCool. You can find it on www.wilderssecurity.net/mrublaster.html

    Backup and remove the items highlighted in red and see if it causes any problems. If not you can leave them out :)

    if its in red, delete it. if it aint red, look 1st and if its a log file its safe to delete, ie.. removing pr0n links from media player... not that i ever look at pr0n...:confused:

    gonna dissagree gonzo

    the history is in red, and I use my history all the time

    his auto complete is something I use often also.

    I don't use animation shop, but my guess is recent images and recent work are usefull folders as well

    so just read the evtry, and decide from what it is, whether or not to delete it
