I did a scan on my computer recently because it was slowing down and the the internet was laggy. I used malwarebytes. I didn't delete anything yet, but here is the log. Are these okay to delete without it negatively affecting the operation of the computer. The computer has sophos safeguard(stand alone mode) running, wherein before I even login to windows I need to put in the appropriate password. This is why I am asking if it is okay to delete these found possible threats.

 

Here is the log.

Usually it is safe to delete the files that Malwarebytes flags. If it's a false positive, it would oftentimes be a system file that is impossible to be uninstalled, so it ultimately doesn't matter:)

IMO...the safe thing to do is move them to Quarantine.  If there are no problems with the files quarantined/unavailable...then you can later delete them.
