rogue Killer by Tigzy. After Scan how would I know which one of checked items to delete under the register key? Can I delete all that are checked? Is there a list such as a database?

You have to google each item if you want to know what they are.

For your peace of mind, you can take a registry backup and then delete all the checked items. Go to Start => Run => Regedit. Click on File and then Export.

Google the items.

Alternatively take a full backup of your PC using Acronis or somehting.

Then fix all and see if it fixes everything.

If you have an issue, restore your PC from backup and try again.
