How to Delete or Remove a PUP with the Free version?

Recommended Posts

I have the free version ( of MBAM on a Win 7 64 bit machine. I have always loved, used faithfully, and strongly recommended Malwarebytes to friends and associates. 


I just did a Threat Scan and I have PUP.Optional.Conduit.A. The options to deal with this are Quarantine, Add Exclusion, and Ignore Once. I seem to recall that the older, pre-facelifted (GUI) had an option to either remove or delete PUPs. Is this still possible with the "new" free version? 


Thank you.

Quarantine *is* removal. :)
Please make sure your settings look like the picture.
Having said that, Conduit can be a REAL pain to fully remove.
You might want to follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will guide you through any additional cleanup process that might be needed.

You're most welcome.

I'm glad I could help.

The expert malware removal help is free, if you change your mind.


ALSO, for additional information:
There is an FAQ Section here: Common Questions, Issues, and their Solutions
And here are links to the MBAM 2.0 User Guide: Online and PDF
And there are many useful KB topics and videos at the helpdesk support page

I had actually looked at the 2.0 User Guide before posting but for some reason I didn't draw a correlation between Quarantine and Remove or Delete. Just used to the older version, I suspect.


I hadn't really looked at the Helpdesk Support page, aside from a glance. I like this forum and appreciate the assistance.
