Found Maleware - unsure about deleting
« on: January 04, 2013, 05:39:49 PM »
I've scanned a computer and came up with three files that I'm not sure about. Can you please look at them and let me know if I can delete them

Thanks,
Melissa

Hi Melissa the first one is an Adobe help file, but can be deleted with no ill effect.  The other two are just orphan registry entries and again deletion will not be a problem

and.....malwarebytes does not delete.....it moves to quarantine, so if you have any ill effects you can just restore the file  ;)
