If you use a malware removal tool such as Malwarebytes or Zemana, I would say no.

Keep an eye on what they are before you quarantine - Generally it will only be things you've installed yourself or programs that have been installed with other software installations (such as toolbars etc).

 

Very low risk of doing any harm to your PC by removing them. One way to be sure is to back up your PC first just in case.

 

Cheers :)
