Nope, those are files with specific characteristics that are no longer valid on your system (not needed and were/are threats).

Thanks for the reply. I decided to run a host of other antispyware/antivirus apps to see if they would find the same thing:

Spybot

Ad-Aware

Malwarebytes

ESET - paid AV/AS - one of the best out there.

None of the other apps turned up anything. Does that surprise you? Is there something SUPERAntiSpyware looks for that the others do not? Before I quarantine the items that SUPER found, I'd like to know your thoughts. Thanks!

Different antimalware applications will find different infections.

It would be a good idea to purge the restore points and create a new one (just disable System Restore, then Enable it).

It does not surprise me at all - each product often finds things the other products don't - it's just the nature of the "game"
