  1. In our organiztion we are continually experiencing hundreds/thousands of log entries for PUP.Option.MindSpark in various forms within Chrome. Wondering how best to either block these or if this is something we need to worry about? Below is a sample from a Management Console report.

  5. For the past three weeks, malware detects many instances of PUP.Optional.MindSpark.Generic whenever I run a scan. When click on it to quarantine the infections, my google chrome browser automatically closes. After quarantining, I then normally delete the quarantined files. Many times I would then shut off my computer and restart it. After a few hours or less of computer usage, if I then run malwarebytes again, I would find that a reinfection has occurred. It seems that I am not able to get rid of the infection with Malwarebytes. Kindly advise me on what to do. It's a bit annoying for me to con

  9. Hello! I scanned Malwarebytes Free and came with 4 detection from the threat scan, all of them PUP.Mindspark. I kept them in the quarantine section in Malwarebytes. I followed some of the steps here in the forum such as the adwcleaner (i ran the scan and cleaned some of them), then I ran the FRST next and came up with these reports: Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x86) Version: 08-06-2015Ran by windows 7 (administrator) on WINDOWS7-PC on 09-06-2015 11:56:46Running from C:\Users\windows 7\DownloadsLoaded Profiles: windows 7 (Available Profiles: windows 7 & rishibility
  10. I've run Malwarebytes free edition on a family members PC twice (mbam-setup-2.0.4.1028.exe). Both times after reboot and log on it hangs. After a hard hard power off I can reboot it into safe mode only. What recommendations do you have.

  12. I purchased and installed Malwarebytes Premium (MBAM) severak days ago. Since I ran the initial scan and cleaned quite a bit of malware, I have been getting regular popups in the task bar mostly for a malware called RadioRage Toolbar by Mindspark. Malwarebytes recognizes the threat with constant popups but does not give me any way to clean it from my system. I see the Radio Rage Toolbar program in my Windows Program List but it will not let me uninstall it - it says that it can't find 4jBar.dll. There is a directory on my C-drive for Radio Rage but I cannot delete it - it says files are in use
