I have a Malware Bytes Log File and even did a housecall scan, MBAM detected 12 cases, Housecall detected 4 (2 of which i already know are what other two i dont know). What I am wondering is if these entries are safe to remove or if there will be consequences of removing the files/registry entries? I know deleting or even changing registry entries can result in a unrecoverable OS.

Ive done Malware removal before but its been like two years since i have done any such procedure. I honestly would like to avoid having to format an OS drive/start fresh.

I have Spyware Blaster Installed as a preventive measure for all browsers (Google Chrome dont have it) I have noscript for FireFox aswell (Not sure if IE or Even Chrome have an equivalent)

The machine is kept up on Windows updates.

Any Help is appreciated

Windows Web Commander?

That has never popped up before on this computer, not even once, I did a quick search of it on google and it looks almost like the XP Security center but its faux. Thats not on this machine, just the reported items in the log file and housecall
