PUP.optional.CenturyLink.ShrtCln


Recommended Posts

I see there are other Shrt.Cln type detections when I search for this PUP on Google; this PUP has recently surfaced on my 2 PC's and when I remove them, they are still there when I scan it again. I don't know what the purpose of these files are for from CenturyLink ( but I am wondering how to keep them off my PC's?) MB finds them, and they are "removed" only to be found again? Thanks. IDon'tKnow..

Hello, thank you for the reply and suggestions. I have tried in earnest to contact someone at Century Link regarding what this PUP might possibly be but I really am not getting any real answers. Is it really a harmful file? Then again it may be some PUP I would prefer not being on my machines. I have contacted CL thru email on their Cust Svc. site, then chatted; was given a phone number to call and I spent 1 hour exploring this with various customer support personnel all total and apologetically got frustrated as usual after a bit but bottom line is the last person in PC Services couldn't tell me, didn't know, and assured me that CL is not the source of this? Oh well, I give up. and I don't know, either! Just bugs me though.
