What is Malware

I have just run my usual weekly scan with AdAware and as usual it found the usual plethora of data miners, but what concerns me is that this time it picked up two items referred to as Malware. Does anyone know if these are Trojans and should I take further steps to make sure they are gone. What is also unusual is that the next time I started my machine it reported the common message that it had Finished updating files and was continuing etc.etc....
I had made no changes except allowing AdAware to delete all the items it listed. I have Norton AV and Firewall and intend to do a full scan tonight. I will also run Stinger. Yes I will turn off System restore first.
I would be grateful for any advice.
