Hello and :welcome:

Here is some information about PUPs and about the new Malwarebytes Anti-Malware policy:

PUP = Potentially Unwanted Program

What are the 'PUP' detections, are they threats and should they be deleted?

Malwarebytes Adopts Aggressive PUP Policy

As explained in those posts, PUPs are not themselves malicious.

If you don't want them, you can tell MBAM to remove them.

If you know what they are and want to keep them, you can tell MBAM to ignore them.

The KB topic linked above explains how to deal with them (i.e. whether to remove or to ignore them and how to do that).

Having said all that, if you're not sure what to ignore/keep and what to remove, it would be a good idea to follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

A qualified malware analyst will guide you through some scans and the cleanup process, to remove malware/adware/junkware.

Thanks :)
