Hi,

When it's in Virus Vault/quarantaine, these files are not in their original place anymore, but moved to the quarantaine, so they can't do anything as long as they are present there.
You can also delete everything present in the AVG Virus Vault/quarantaine. There should be an option to do this in your AVG. Make sure you don't select restore, because it will place the files back then.

I asked to use Ccleaner before, to clean up temp files, contents of prefetch etc... so the sysclean log wouldn't be that long, because it lists everything also present in prefetch.
So yes, run it, it will clean up unnecessary files. Also take a look at the main site what Ccleaner does:
http://www.ccleaner.com/

Also an important note..
Effective July 11, 2006, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me will transition to a non-supported status. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide any incident support options or security updates. Existing support documents, however, will continue to be available through the Microsoft
Support Product Solution Center Web site.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/support/endofsupport.mspx

So, keep in mind, most new programs being made won't run on ME anymore. So it's a good idea to upgrade to XP :thumbsup:

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
