I'm running Windows XP and use Yahoo Protection Suite. On occasion I scan with Trend Micro Housecall. Housecall takes about 50 minutes to do a full system scan, which is long, but acceptable. The problem is when I hit "clean" to delete the adware and cookies it found, Housecall hangs at either "preparing" or "deleting" indefinitely. Whats up and how can I delete the undesirable stuff found?
