Being that Avast 5.0 caused some trouble for me I have been using Spybot's resident protection. I plan the switch back soon, but for now I did a quick scan and these Poped up

Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13

After seeing this I did a full scan, it did not find anymore problems. Now I don't know what would have these large names such as "87ca3845-37fe-414c-81cf-e08a7d0f6779". And the only new programs I have installed are google' internet broswer and a copy of MS paint(Mine was deleted some how). Now these Broswer Helper Objects I don't know how they go there, being that it didn't detect any files just the Registry. Is this  major problem orcould these just be cookies or something?

BHO's with no file attached are generally impotent - those are orphaned registry entries

By the way, there is no need to turn off Spybot's resident protection as it works well with avast.

Avast is an antivirus program while Spybot is an antimalware program and it is OK to have one of each as a resident program.
