Last night I ran a full Malwarebytes scan after finishing using one of my laptops for the day. However, after the scan was completed I left my laptop on all night with no open browsers, just the icons and the desktop gadgets on the display screen. Upon waking in the morning, I saw that my laptop had run its scheduled Malwarebytes full scan during the night and detected 56 PUPS. With no browsers open between the time I manually ran the scan and Malwarebytes ran its scheduled scan, 56 PUPS found their way into my system. Where could they have come from with no browsers open? Incidentally, I have two laptops with identical icons and identical desktop gadgets both running off of the same wifi. The other laptop also runs a scheduled Malwarebytes at about the same time as the laptop in question and was unaffected, finding no PUPS. I would be interested in finding out from where the PUPS came. I have attached a screenshot of my display screen with icons and desktop gadgets in hopes it will be of assistance.
