spybot.. system internals...to delete or not?

Unread postby mermaid25 » April 16th, 2006, 12:54 pm

Have just posted this to PCA forum, but just wanted to make sure before I deleted the stuff.

Whilst I'm getting a bit more confident about changing stuff, I didn't know what to do about the list in spybots system internals.
there is a lot of things that have the following next to them:

'wrong app path'
'missing shared DLL'
'missing help file'
'wrong uninstall info'
'start up file does not exist'

(they all only have one of these quotes)

I deleted them and then chickened out and went back to the restore point. generally can they all be deleted without any problems or would you need to know what each item was?

Those are most likely orphaned entries and should be able to be deleted safely.
