    All of those are bad..Tracking cookies and TimeSink AdBot files.....removing them will not affect Corel.
    Anything Adaware flags should be removed.
    This is the optimum setup for Adaware.
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"


    Click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"


    Go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    Then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu)

    If you want someone to check your HijackThis log just post it.
