Is it a virus/adware scan result - the files relate to whatever program 'panicware' is on your system.

Probably some junk you've downloaded. Create a system restore point before deleting and you'll be fine. Worst case is 'panicware' will not work properly afterwards.

Panicware seems to be a downloadable popup blocking program

Start>Control Panel>Performance & Maintenance>System Restore>Create a restore point

If you have not added any programs or made any system changes lately you may find a very recent restore point (date in bold) already created which you can restore to if you don't like the results of your changes when you delete the files.Depends how your system is set up for restre points to be created automatically.

just been to a-squared forum site,and yes it is a false posotive,the new update is picking up panicware pop up stopper as suspicious,panicware is safe to use and i trust pc advisor 100%
