Please let me know if it does and what they are

Only shows 13 threats now and 11 are in my Microsoft Antispyware Quarantine, which I cannot seem to locate. The paths are very long and will take a long time for me to write each one down. Must be an easier way.
Can you advise?
The other 2 are located here:

The items in microsoft quarantine are harmless. Unfortunately I dont use the program and dont know how to delete them out of quarantine. I will ask around.
Now open pocketkillbox Select the option "Delete on reboot".
Now highlight and 'copy' (Ctrl + C) the entire list of filepaths below:
Click 'File' on the killbox menu at the top and choose 'Paste from clipboard'
The entire list should now be in the "Full Path of File to Delete"
field.To check, click on the dropdown-arrow next to that field.
If you expand it, these lines should all be there
Then press the red button with a white X in it.
Killbox will tell you that all listed files will be deleted on next reboot, click YES.When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, click YES.
Are you having any problems other than the microsoft quarantine one?

I'm running another scan because apparently 1 file renamed itself from
It is now
I'll be back in ten.

how is the computer running?

I still don't know where the 14th threat dissappeared to.
I'll keep trying to delete the quarantine files in MS antispyware.
If you find out about it, let me know. I want this crap off my PC.
The computer is running great

I just found something very interesting.
The files I was searching for are not in MS antispyware, they're here:
The file C:\Program Files\Microsoft AntiSpyware\Quarantine\A0888C61-03CA-4465-B9FC-56079A\01265912-1B27-4A1E-9379-A28A89 is an adware threat.
I'm sorry, I overlooked the program files part.
This is 1 of 12 folders with 1 of the folders being empty.
(Recap- There are 11 threats existing now)
I didn't know the proper way to delete them so I would like you to take me step by step, if you would, to remove these folders the right way.
I'm hoping I don't have to write each folder down for you, as you can see they're long. If I could have copy/ paste earlier, we wouldn't be here now.
I found 12 folders in this file but didn't make the connection until I ran the mouse arrow over it's path and "BINGO", the hidden number appeared.
Anyway, I'm here waiting for your reply.

Even though the quarantine area in MS spyware doesn't show any threats after a scan, the program files hosting these threats cannot be deleted?
And if this is true, most quarantine areas auto- delete after a while, does this not happen here?
