I saw this topic on another thread here 

(https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/154762-pupoptionalspigota-chrome-preferences/):

"Hey recently Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detected PUP.Optional.Spigot.A, I quarantined it and thought it was taken care but I got the notification again and it's from the same location. Is this harmful? And how do I get rid of it?"

 

Since my malwarebytes anti malware detected that on my laptop aswell :

 

it showed: Threat1) PUP.Optional.Spigot - value - HKU\1-5-21-2615306787-282194187-4206325754-10...

                 Threat 2)PUP.Optional.Spigot - key - HKU\1-5-21-2615306787-282194187-4206325754-10...

 

i decided to delete utorrent and AVG, malware, glary, turn off windows defender, firewall - and run ZOEK with that script i saw on the thread:

 

createsrpoint;

Hello,
    
 
They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.
 
     
    
Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!
:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

We won't support any piracy.
That being told, if any evidence of illegal OS, software, cracks/keygens or any other will be revealed, any further assistance will be suspended. If you are aware that there is this kind of stuff on your machine, remove it before proceeding!
The same applies to any use of P2P software: uTorrent, BitTorrent, Vuze, Kazaa, Ares... We don't provide any help for P2P, except for their removal. All P2P software has to be uninstalled or at least fully disabled before proceeding!
 
Failure to follow these guidelines will result with closing your topic and withdrawning any assistance.
 
 



You should not follow the steps from other topics, that could be dangerous sometimes. Instead of that, you need to create your own reports, using the instructions below.



Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
