  1. Malwarebytes tells me through scans that PUP files are present in google chrome, and when quarantined then removed they return quickly. I installed chrome on a new laptop recently and the PUP files are detected on that as well now- so concerned that the issue is with my account. I have attached the most recent scan results on my laptop. Would appreciate any help as is concerning me. RESULTS.txt
  2. Hi guys, I keep getting an alert saying Malwarebytes can not turn real-time protection on. I keep having to reinstall it in order to get it to work and even after reinstalling sometimes I still can not turn it on. Another problem (attached image) I keep getting this PUP stuff...I remove but they keep coming back...I tried to remove them with CCleaner, adwcleaner_7.0.4.0, Junkware Removal Tool and nothing...all my stuff if updated so I don't know what else to do.
  3. First of all I wanna say how grateful I am for those of you who spend time helping people like me. I think I'm relatively computer savvy, I run adblock, noscript, and malwarebytes but sometimes things just slip past my defenses and in this case I can't get rid of it without some help! so thanks I've noticed that google search will sometimes try to suggest something in an unfamiliar dropdown hotbar below the url bar in my browser. In addition, youtube will occasionally not display the video, instead showing a blank grey screen except for the sidebar. When I turn off adblock I get an ad on this screen which obviously seems like adware. When I run Malwarebytes it turns up "pup.optional.spigot.a," but every time I try to remove it it reappears once I've rebooted and scanned again. This seems like a registry problem but I'm having trouble figuring out how to remove it on my own. I've attached the log at the bottom, I also ran CCleaner and AdwCleaner which didn't make a difference. I've seen threads on here from a google search and tried most of the steps, but nothing seemed to work. pupspigotlog5-2-2015.txt
