How do I remove detected objects after a scan?

After a scan is finished the 'Scan Results' screen is shown, detected objects are listed by family and are given a pre-selected Lavasoft 'recommended action' defined by Lavasoft experts.
The infection type, total number of objects, their TAI rating and the action to perform are also shown.

To change an Action click on the drop-down menu under the Action heading.
The following actions are available.

Custom: You can change the Action by clicking on "Custom Action" or by clicking on the description menu at the end of that particular Family.

Remove all: Delete all objects for a particular family from your system.
Quarantine all: Add all objects for a particular family to Quarantine; isolate and back-up the object in quarantine, where it does not pose a threat to your system.
Add To Ignore List: Add the object to the Ignore List; keep the item on your system and make sure it is not detected in future scans.
Allow all Once: Allow the objects for a particular family to stay on the system. During the next scan, the objects will be detected again.
Repair all: Ad-Aware will attempt to repair all objects for a particular family.

Note: Selected action for a particular family will be applied only to objects that selected action can be applied to.

To change an Action for single detected object from the recommended action, choose custom and select one of the following custom actions.

Quarantine: Add the object to Quarantine; isolate and back-up the object in quarantine, where it does not pose a threat to your system.
Remove: Delete the object from your system.
Add To Ignore: Add the object to the Ignore List; keep the item on your system and make sure it is not detected in future scans.
Allow Once: Allow the object to stay on the system. During the next scan, the object will be detected again.
Repair: Repair detected object (available only for specific objects).

Select the required action for each object from the drop-down menu and then click "Perform Actions Now".
Ad-Aware will apply the required action for each detected object and present you with the "Scan Summary? screen.
