Hi Nancy and welcome to BC
Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools>Internet Options>Settings>View Objects. You will likely find those items there. You can safely delete anything in there. Certainly you want to delete any that say corrupted or invalid or anything other than Installed. These are ActiveX controls that are downloaded to run games, anti virus and spyware scanners, update tools etc. Anything you delete will be replaced when needed again by visiting the site where you got them. This is also a favourite way for spyware to get into your computer.
The CLSID is a registry entry. Download and install CCleaner
. Go to the Issues tab and scan for issues. The list that comes up will be invalid registry entries. Go through the list and find the key that you want to remove, check it and click Fix Selected Issues. You can safely remove all these entries if you wish. If you do, when prompted, be sure to make a backup and note where you save it to and what you call it so it can be restored if neccessary. You will also find your ActiveX/Com Issues here.
