Reboot-BD & Prcviewer - Potential Unwanted Programs

McAfee is identifying these 2 programs as Potental Unwanted Programs, but is unable to quarantine them.  I did find a prior thread on this and tried the following:

"It is known to McAfee but as it is in your "System Volume Information" section, i.e. System Restore, it can't be cleaned as Windows protects those files.

Temporarily disable System Restore, reboot and it should be gone."

But the scan is still finding both these programs and unable to quarantine.  I have run several malware scanners + a registry cleaner + deleted temporary internet files.

Any other suggestions?  Thanks in advance for your help here.

Re: Reboot-BD & Prcviewer - Potential Unwanted Programs

Additional information from the scan log - these are the files creating the above messages:

"C:\dell\Spyware & Malware Tools\AdAware\Removal Tools\SmitfraudFix.exe"    "PrcViewer"    "5"

"C:\dell\Spyware & Malware Tools\AdAware\Removal Tools\SmitfraudFix.exe"    "Reboot-BD"    "5"

Are these files safe and part of AdAware and should be trusted or should they be removed?

Thanks for any help / responses here.
