    After I do my scan I know to get rid of the critical objects but these MRU's confuse me. One category that keeps recurrring so I keep checking the box off and going onto next.
    What are these objects and am I doing the right thing? As you can see I am not a tech type.
    I have tried using spybot before adaware and it has not picked up anything for months.
    Sometimes I wonder if it is working. I also use spyblaster and A2.
    I guess spybot is working. It is the latest version but only adaware and my spysweeper pick anything up.
    I hope to get comments to my diverse issues. Thankyou :)

    Hey Wills,

    The MRU's(Neglible entries) are safe to remove.

    Mru's are mini history lists. A lot of Microsoft and non-Microsoft programs provide that list for easy recall of documents or media files.
    If you are on a stand alone computer, it can be convenient for recalling a document you were recently working on, etc.

    If you share you computer, others can see what you have been doing.
