Hi mommapez
Lets start with the basics, are you trying to quarantine them or delete them and they keep coming back OR are you asking HOW to quarantine or delete them? Which ever to decide to do, quarantine or delete, a check mark has got to put put in each box of the ones you want to get rid of. That is a common mistake that people make sometimes.

Malware has a lot of definitions. There are new ones out everyday and some are easier to get rid of than others. We are going to need to know a few more things. There are different ways to get rid of most of them depending on what they are. We need to know EXACTLY what each one is. Also, you operating system would help too. What else are you using besides Ad-Aware? I'm talking about Spyware protection, virus protection, etc. It takes a few things nowadays. Depending on what your answers are, someone will tell you what to try next. If I disappear for the day before you come back, someone else will help you.
