I just ran ADWcleaner for the first time on my Win7 and Vista and got the following 3 exceptions for the Win7 and 22 Registry entries for the Vista/. Can I delete (clean) them or not?  Or should I leave all those files as they are and not CLEAN anything? I have been advised several times not to do anything regarding changing/deleting any files from Win7 Registry.

I didn't do anything after each scan, I just closed the program!!

 

I;m new at all of this so please explain so even I can understand.

Both computers have been running okay as far as I can tell.

 

Thank you.

Your kind help would be appreciated as these results have me quite concerned.

 

I ran scans with MSE; MB and SpyBot and nothing found..

 

Here is the Win7 log ========================
