Hi All!  I am new to this forum and new at operating Adwcleaner.  I downloaded the latest and greatest version then ran the Scan function.
Here is my log from the scan.
Can someone please let me know which files and which registry keys/entries I should clean/delete so I don't inadvertently delete the important ones?!

As you all know deleting an important registry field/key could wreak havoc on my Windows XP OS.

There are also folders referred to in the log which should be cleaned/deleted but I don't want to be deleting files of programs/applications I want to keep such as 'Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate'.

I am just wondering why Adwcleaner would tell me to delete the entire folder(s).  Can someone please explain this to me?

And Microsoft has stopped supporting Windows XP so you guys are my only hope.

I have Windows XP Home Edition by the way.
Thank you all so much!
