So I recently ran MalwareBytes and it came up with this PUP. Optional.ASK Users\Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data PUP.Optional.Spigot Users\Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data When I quarantine the files and run another scan it detects the same ones again (immediately after it just quarantined them)and will quarantine even more files. This just goes on and on, yet I have no toolbar installed in chrome and see nothing about Spigot or any unwanted ads? I haven't installed any new programs so I'm not sure what it could be from if not a false positive? Any idea what it could be?
The same group of six or so malware has been showing up in my Chrome browser for about two years according to Adwcleaner. This is across multiple installations of Chrome and across multiple computers. Why can't I shake it? Attached is latest Adwcleaner log with the same suspects. Thanks for any help, for I am clueless. _______ Robert B. AdwCleaner[C2].txt
