Hello, I haven't actually been having any issues with my system but every now and then I like to run a Malwarebytes scan just to see if finds anything, usually it doesn't. Anyway after running it today it said it had found the following 4 registry PUP issues, all belonging to AnviSmartDefender: Registry Key: 3 PUP.Optional.AnviSmartDefender, HKU\S-1-5-21-4079224529-1850452133-1189164913-1001\SOFTWARE\MOZILLAPLUGINS\anvisoft.com/AdblockPlugin, No Action By User, 295, 840222, 1.0.27693, , ame, PUP.Optional.AnviSmartDefender, HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\GOOGLE\CHROME\EXTENSIONS\LHMIOFMIPCPMHGIHIECMPIEKCACIGPGB, No Action By User, 295, 840219, 1.0.27693, , ame, PUP.Optional.AnviSmartDefender, HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\ANVISOFT\Anvi Smart Defender, No Action By User, 295, 840212, 1.0.27693, , ame, Registry Value: 1 PUP.Optional.AnviSmartDefender, HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\GOOGLE\CHROME\EXTENSIONS\LHMIOFMIPCPMHGIHIECMPIEKCACIGPGB|PATH, No Action By User, 295, 840219, 1.0.27693, , ame, These have all been Quarantined. I'm just curious to know if anyone else knows anything about these and whether I should just delete them. It's strange because I thought Anvi Smart Defender was a legitimate anti virus software, and I also don't have Anvi Smart Defender installed on this PC and never have. I'm also using Windows 8.1 64 bit. Thanks very much for reading and any help you can provide, Elliot.
