Spybot S&D - safe to remove spyware?

  researcher 19:33 04 Feb 04

Spybot S&D and Adaware have both found registry based items which are now in quarantine.

Most have been quarantined for over a month without seeming ill effect, is it OK to now delete these? I can't cut & paste but two shortish examples are

Bargain buddy class h_key_classes_root\apuc.urlcatcher

Gator:Hidden identity hkey__root\clsid\{21FF....etc.

I've always removed everything that both find with no ill affects to date, even the "n-case" registry entry found by addaware.

Thanks all. Will remove gradually just in case.
