had an introduction to my post earlier, but had to edit it to replace emoticons, and managed to replace my intro.
Anyway, I ran a scan using Emsisoft anti-malware, which supposedly picked up 4 "threats." Looking these up online, I think they're quite safe, and removing them would possibly render my device unstable? For instance, bthudtask (the first "threat"), has to do with the bluetooth on my laptop I believe.

Make sure Emsisoft is up to date. To verify the flagged files you could do a on line scan at ESET or any other online scanner.

Also you could up load each file to VirusTotal or Jotti to have it checked out  Or you could just assume they are all false positives. They can all throw up a occasional false positive.
