Hi Rosalie and welcome to the Malwarebytes support forums.


Upon revisiting the 4 reported softwares i can report back  that both Ultra eBook Reader and Ultra File Opener were false positive detections and can confirm that those detections have been removed.


However both PC TuneUp Maestro and PC Clean Maestro are being classified as Potentially Unwanted Program because of the following compounded behaviors observed in the past weeks.


#1 Both software have been seen distributed via multiple mainstream download wrappers where they are pre checked for installation(eg Opt out)


* Since its well known that most end users are duped by dark patterns or obscure opt out mechanisms used by most download wrappers into installing software then it comes as no surprise that many end users see software delivered this way as unwanted and complain because of that.


#2 The software sets itself to run at system start up and sets additional system tasks, it scans the persons machine and then wants payment/registration in order to action any found issue's.


This continues every time the user logs in until either purchased, uninstalled or they have located where in the software settings(or operating system)  they can uncheck for it too no longer run either via system start up or by the additional scheduled tasks.


Additionally it offers no time limited functionality or partial functionality to action any of those reported issues to provide some proof of *value* before purchase.
