I'm assuming you're using NetView for Windows since the BadOID SmartSet is unique to the Windows version of NetView. It helps if you preface your notes to the list with the operating system and version of the product you use.
That said, the naming of the SmartSet as BAD is not well done but the true name "UnrecognizedOIDs" is a bit too long. The SmartSet contains the devices which are not in the oid_to_type file and somewhere in the literature it recommends what Farrag recommended; add the OIDs for those devices to the oid_to_type file. That was one of the items in the NetView for Windows for Administrators class back when I was teaching it.
Other unfortunate things about the Windows version of the product are the missing features (Rule Set Editor is one) and the relatively sparse documents. For a lot of the detail on administering the product you have to use the Unix publications.
When you did your "Clean Installation" you put in the basic product package which includes OIDs for the most common switches and routers found in the US. I might also add that many of the default entries are for obsolete switches and routers because the developers can never seem to keep up with the variety of new equipment constantly being released by manufacturers large and small around the world. At my NetView for Unix installation we added about twenty entries for Cisco switches and IBM SAN devices.
The easy part is adding the new OIDs since they are easily constructed from the data in the system branch of the MIB tree and the information in the header of the oid_to_type file. Don't forget the companion file /usr/OV/conf/C/oid_to_sym and the device registration files if you want the icons to resolve to other than defaults.
