  1. A couple of week ago, I noticed that Chrome would randomly switch to using yahoo search when I typed a term in the omnibox. I scanned my computer with Hitman Pro, but didn't find anything other than tracking cookies. So, I scanned it with Malwarebytes, and it found several PUPs. I finished up the scan/quarantine, and when I reopened Chrome, none of the pages opened - they would load indefinitely with the occasional "Page Unresponsive" popup. Chrome only worked if I disabled sandbox, and each time I ran MB, it seemed to quarantine the same group of PUPs. I tried uninstalling and reinstalli

  12. These two PUPs keep coming back. I ran the scan, submitted the logs, but nothing helps. Right after I quarantine, I get a message from WinPatrol saying something like "someone is trying to change your start page to Google". Optional Spigot (in location) seems to be associated with the registry for the start page of Internet Explorer (I don't use IE) and the reimage is listed as a File, it's in the APPDATA LOCAL GOOGLE CHROME USER DATA DEFAULT PREFERENCES. Hope you can help. Paul

  18. Looking for guidance on two potentially related problems: 1) Beginning around Nov. 8, Malwarebytes (Premium 3.3.1) has been identifying PUP.Optional.Spigot during its daily scan of our desktop. When I click "quarantine," Google Chrome abruptly shuts down. I restart Chrome, and then Malwarebytes finds Spigot again on its next scan. I did check my Google Chrome extensions, and nothing suspicious shows up there. I also went through the processes described in "Chrome Secure Preferences detection always comes back, " and it did not solve the problem. PUP.Optional.Spigot repeatedly comes back (

  23. MWB 3 identifies PUP.Optional.Spigot as malware (or a PUP) everyday, even if I quarantine it. The file is located at C:\Users\Jon\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yijbwobi.default\prefs.js If I delete it, the file is recreated by Firefox, and MWB identifies it again. Any ideas on: 1. Is it a problem? 2. If so - how do I get rid of it permanently, if not - how can I stop MWB identifying it every day? I am attaching the file with txt extension added. Maybe there is some text I can delete that will convince MWB that it is not a problem. Thanks prefs.js.txt
