Default spybot report question

I downloaded and installed spybot (the update link locked the program!!) but I ran it and got the following report:



should I let spybot fix this?

I don't have windows media player installed anymore and don't know what the second two are related to. I do know what Alexa is and will fix that.

p.s. funny that Ad Aware didn't find any of this.

Letting Spybot fix these will do no harm to your system. I've had the same exact ones. The Media Player ones have to do with the integrity of Media Player that allow you to grab data about the music that you are playing to the internet. Since you don't have it installed, fix it just to make Spybot happy. The Speed Delivery ones are an ActiveX control from gigex.com. I would get rid of them. Yes, Adaware does not have these in their defs either. Thats why running two of these programs is good!
