Ooookay, I've done this thing three times and everytime i do it when it come to doing the complete scan and ive already changed the settings i click on cure it doesnt give me the option to report it incurable.
But both times its found up to a total or about 7/8 things so its obviously wokring. I'm just wondering if im doing something wrong?

You cured them yet they are still there? can you manual write down where each is?

If any entries show under C:\System Volume Information, don't bother writing those down, they are harmless.

No no ive got them all there once the scan is done but when i click on them to cure what it can and report the rest, the "Cure" button becomes unclickable. :/
But i can re-do the scan and manually report them to you on here, will that help?

Hello.
Okay doesn't look too bad, WildTangent isn't malicious.

Not too sure what the others are, container sounds like a zip file maybe.

Hello.
Please download this.

Extract the .reg file inside, double click it to run it and select yes to the registry merge prompt, then reboot normally.

Are you Desktop icons any better now?
