No need to delete those.
There's nothing in a program files folder for exterminate it!, then?
Do you have Asquared installed? (Or been to the emsisoftware website)?

No, that's OK.
The "recent" folder only contains shortcuts.
You probably wouldn't even be able to delete any of them.

The point is, "extermite it" appears to not be on your computer. Though how it got there in the first place has to remain one of life's mysteries.

Ah, yes. They are a reputable company making security software, including Asquared free, Mamatu, Asquared Antimalware.
Sort of along the same lines as MalwareBytes, or Superantispyware. Been in the business quite a while. Very well respected, I would say.
