ty for replying to my post...what about the results that I got from the Norton scan, it listed some Program Files & WINDOWS files along w/ .tmp files...could these be removed safely from my puter, they're not vital for the running performance of my puter? Sorry, just very worried to do something wrong & delete a file that I might need for performance of puter.
Example of some of the file names:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\LocalSettings\Temp\~...tmp (files end in .tmp)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\WinTools\WToolsS.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\...dll (files end in .dll)
these are just a few of the type of files listed as being adware.
If I list what adware files show up from Norton & the Ad Aware program, would you or some one be able to tell me if the particular files that I list are vital for the performance of my puter...I guess I'm very worried about doing it w/o being helped. I'd appreciate any help that I can get.

Don't go poking around, deleting files on your own especially if you don't know what they are. Cleanup has never caused me any problems, nor has AdAware or Spybot. Keep your system clean and free of malware, it will run better!
