Hello. I have a major problem with my computer. I use Windows Xp home edition and have a spyware program called Ad-Aware SE. This morning ran the program and found that I had hijacking attempts and other wierd programs (5 or 6) that it found. They were mostly "VX2" programs which I read couldn't be deleted. But I preformed a system restore and set it to yesterday (July 10th). When I restarted Windows I ran the Spyware program again and the programs were mostly gone. The only two left were a VX2 and a MRU file. But they were eraced without any problem. Everything seems fine now, but when I preform the System scan it says "Deep Scanning Local Registry" then it shows it scanning for these files:

Possible browser hijacking attempts-
ClSID/541651968561 (bunch of numbers)
Typelib/546515611512(bunch of numbers again)

First off does that mean that the spyware/virus is still on my computer?
Even though the spyware doesn't see anything bad when the scan is complete shouldn't those file names be deleted? If so how?

Thanks so much to whoever can answer this. It would make my week.
