Which of these files is safe to remove without causing minor/serious problems for windows 7. I am asking this because the last time I removed files I had to completely reinstall windows. I am using Windows 7 64bit.

Here is a Puu.sh link incase you can't see the file http://puu.sh/64DMV.png

Good evening. :)

The legend PUP stands for Potentially Unwanted Program and indicates that you can live with or without them as you see fit. If you knoiwingly installed the associated programs  and want to keep them working, you should leave them alone.

The majority appear to be either BearShare (which you could just uninstall rather then disable it by partially removing items) or something that was installed alongside it.

 

You need to start by letting me know whether you want to keep BearShare working or not.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Helpers are limited in the number of logs they can take by the time they have available and having threads sit idle means that somebody else who could be being helped has to wait.
Given that there has been no response for at least five days, and I have no way of knowing when there will be one, this thread is now closed.

When you are able to free up some time to work on your PC problem, feel free to start a fresh thread and somebody will be along as soon as to help.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.
