think you are saying that you had no problems but wanted to be sure so you got ARO (which immediately found lots of "problems").
ARO is something you are better off without. Your initial post looks like you think it is an Anti-Virus product but IT IS NOT!
ARO is one of those products that play on a user's lack of knowledge and preys on their thinking it is effective because it provides them with a list of "bad" things but unfortunately these things it finds are so bad you have to buy something else to clean them up. In short it is a modern version of the snake oil that itinerant self proclaimed doctors used to sell that could cure everything from the common cold to the regeneration of amputated limbs.
At best you should just uninstall it and like magic all those "problems" found will no longer be "problems". At worst you will need to return here to get help uninstalling every last vestige of the program.
As a helpful hint, any time a software publisher makes a statement like this "<i><b>ARO 2012 is one of the only products to support Windows 7 and both 32 & 64 bit PCs.
This means that your PC will be safe when using our product.</b></i>" Find that statement just above their download link at http://www.sammsoft.com/aro/q4landing5/default.aspx?referrer=go-E22brand-aro you can be pretty sure that the product is no better than its claim in light of the dozens if not hundreds of products to support Windows 7 in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
What you do need on the PC is a good Anti-Virus such as the free or paid versions of AVAST, AVG, Anti-Vir, or several others AND MalwareBytes Anti-Malware as well as Super Anti-Malware. The Anti-Virus app takes care of the virus, trojans, and worms while the two Anti-Malware apps take care of other types of malware which might include some of the trojans.
