Default Ad-aware SE question

I never used this product before and I just loaded it on my system and I performed a scan on it. I am not sure what to do next. The scan came back with 567 objects. Am I suppose to put a check next to all these ojects and then select next? Any help is appreciated.

you can also right click in the field with all the results and then click on "select all" and that will just get rid of everything it came up with.

Quarantine them and then delete the backups in the quarantine folder.

You can also change the settings so it can go more in depth of a search.

Any more questions just post em.

If I were you I would read all of them just to see what they are and it may give you a clue where you received them and then dont visit the sites any more. Also look through the program and tweak it to get rid of more adware and spywre. Use the custom function and check almost every one of the advamced options.
