I'm new here after screwing up my computer a few days ago using an anti-malware cleaner called RogueKiller.  While deleting the files in RogueKiller didn't initially cause problems, my computer eventually became disconnected from the internet after a "blue Screen event" and I had to restore my windows 10 to an earlier date.  I just ran AdwCleaner and here's the log file - I hesitate to delete ANYTHING after I had done so before and lost internet connection.  Please advise me the safest way to deal with these "threats" because I am not computer savvy when it comes to registry files - obviously after I screwed up settings that were needed to get online. I don't want to screw up again.

Normally it's safe to delete all items found by AdwCleaner.

To be extra safe you can always create fresh restore point.
