Winzip Malware Protector PUP?

Recommended Posts

MWB identifies winzip malware protector as a PUP, which it may be, but I am not inclined to delete at present. Annoyingly it comes up every day on the MWB scan, and I cannot immediately find any way to tell MWB to ignore the program. Ideas on preventing it finding the program or ignoring it will be welcome. Or maybe MWB does consider it to be a UP. Thanks.

Thank you for understanding.


Please note that if the publicly available trial version is bundled with other software then the "PUP.Optional" detection may be appropriate and would be the reason why it is still being flagged.
