    What should I do? If I delete, will I still be able to use HJT? I have Spybot, Adaware, Spyblaster and NIS..how the heck did that guy slip in?

    NIS is spotting an entry fro a previos run of HJT - Those files are if you need to restores after fixing entries. If you do not need to go back to a previous state then you can delete it.
