Default spyware

i downloaded a program called spyware nuker. and ran it on my pc, and it found spyware on my pc, and the only way i can remove it is to buy the spyware nuker program. my question is , is it worth buying the nuker program to get rid of spyware on my pc? or just leave it alone.

I would delete them all, but be warned that some shady programs, ie. Kazaa will not work correctly if you uninstall their associations.

(That's why I use KazaaLite)

You do have to have the file. Kazaa lite removed the adware code, but kept the file to keep the program functioning.
