Unknown programs

I have several new programs that show up on my list of running prgrams. They are Winservad, Winservsuit, Bundle and Optimize. All show up as malware when I run Spybot or Adaware.

Any idea wha they are? Would it be safe to delete them?

Thanks

Do a google serach, and you will find out all you could possibly want to know about these programs.

It is safe to delete them, but do so in Add/Remove programs first, THEN run an updated scan and remove any remnants.

When I try to remove Winserve ad, I get a message not to, that is supporting other programs??

Remove it anyway, it's bad news. You might have to remove other programs before it, though.
