We download the AdAware ver 1.06r1 and ran a Scan and noticed two new objects.

#1- obj. [1] = Reg.key : softomae.ie toolbar
#2- obj. [1] = Reg.key : softomae.ie toolbar.1

My wife deleted both of them and I wonder if that was the right thing to do. Would someone please tell us if it was OK to deleted both of them? Please advise and thank you.
(We hope we posted this topic in correct area. A bit confusing as to where to post. If we should post it some place else, let us know and we will do so.)

Hello gotaro.
You've posted in the proper place.

Usually, anything Ad-aware finds, you can let it fix.
What you can do in the future is, after you run a scan, have Ad-aware quarantine it.
That way, if you develop any problems later, you can go back and restore it from quarantine.
After a couple of weeks, if no problems develop, you can delete the scan from quarantine.
