  1. To follow that excellent post by exile360, I have an HP desktop PC and HP Support Assistant. HP supplied the set and I accept and install all the updates they provide, including drivers. I would not accept driver update recommendations from any other source.
  2. Note - I have posted this unpleasant incident on the Avast Driver Updater Forum. Out of 50 views so far, nobody has made a comment.
  3. For general information concerning these two Pup's, it was Avast Driver Updater that implanted them in my system. Since uninstalling the program, AdwCleaner has been run many times and they are now gone ! My advice - steer clear of Avast Driver Updater.
  4. LATEST I uninstalled Avast Driver Updater using Revo Uninstaller for a clean deletion and following a new scan with AdwCleaner and reboot, these two Pup's are now gone. Thanks for your help. Problem solved.
  5. @ exile360 Thank you for that comprehensive reply. I have looked at my installed programs and Slimware Utilities or anything like it does not exist on my programs installed list.
  6. Only AdwCleaner is picking these two PUP's up as being "threats". None of my other AV/Malware programs list them - SuperAntiSpyware, Emsisoft Emergency Kit, Hitman Pro, Avast or Malwarebytes all disregard them.
  7. If I follow the registry path = PUP.Optional.Legacy = C:\Windows\System32\drivers\swdumon.sys I can delete the driver. A scan after that and PUP Legacy is gone ! But on restart it comes back. I cannot find the other PUP file.

  9. Please ignore the Auslogics PUP, it is the other two that are the subject of this post.
  10. Two stubborn PUP's refuse to be deleted. Cleaner procedure followed exactly including reboot. On resumption a panel shows that the PUP's have been deleted, but on running the cleaner again, the two PUP's are still detected. This means the two PUP's are installed at start-up. How can I possibly get rid of them when AdwCleaner cannot do it ? A normal Malwarebytes scan using the normal program does NOT detect these PUP's. See -
  11. QUESTION ? Does Adwcleaner place all deletions in Quarantine so that if deletion has an adverse effect on normal PC operations, they can be restored.
  12. Finally I would add that - Avast, Superantispyware, Emsisoft Emergency Kit and Spywareblaster all never found two difficult to remove dangerous virus/trojan PUP's PUP.Optional.22ChromeEXT PUP.Optional.Legacy but AdwCleaner did ! With the help of ADWC and a Sync reset, these PUP's were completely removed.
  13. In my case, AdwCleaner found PUP.Optional.22ChromeEXT under "Bookmarks", which is where the Sync reset came in.
  14. My friend does not have Chrome on her laptop, they use Opera and Firefox.
  15. I myself am very experienced, having 14 years of all kinds of problems. I have used Malwarebytes all that time and hold it in very high regard like the rest of the computer world. I strongly suspect that something went wrong with the download as there was NO shortcut on their desktop, plus their inexperience. I recently ran Adwcleaner and it found two dangerous virus/trojan PUP's - PUP.Optional.22ChromeEXT PUP.Optional.Legacy These PUP's are not easy to remove. With the help of your program plus a Sync reset, these two infections were completely deleted and never came back.
