    You probably can delete most, if not all, of them safely. Keep in mind though that some software might stop running without the adware it came with (kAzAa - not lite - being a good example).
    It's kinda hard for us to advice on something we can't see, so you might want to post the ones you're having doubts about...

    If your experience level is limited, and you are unsure what to remove etc. then a clean install may be the best option for you, especially with this thread you started here:

    http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=257477

    in mind. You should use a new password too.

    You would need to back up any data you wished to keep of course.

    If you decide to go down that route then I would suggest reading these tutorials before starting.

    or you could make a backup copy of what you have now..... then delete the perisite files. the only problem is that if it affects your computer and you use the backup your back a square one again...

    my suggestion is to fallow steve.milner's suggestion... however i would make a backup copy of your drivers

    about 50 or so of them are as follows, (the object name varies by number or letter, but is the same otherwise:
    BackWeb lite {C1A95B70-E795-11D4-B96F-0010A4FBBFC9} HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT type registry rated severe. i have all of these checked for deletion. i really don't want to do a clean reboot if i don't have to. also i read somewhere on my search to do a system search for files that end with .hta and .js. i have alot of these. i read some of them and one in particular looked nasty to me. i am going to try to paste it so ya'll can see it.
