PUP.Optional.TerraClicks.ShrtCln Reappearing


Recommended Posts


During a scan, Malwarebytes uncovered and quarantined a potentially unwanted software (PUP.Optional.TerraClicks.ShrtCln) and every time I attempt to delete it, it manages to reappear on the next scan. I have since repeated this process 3 or 4 times. I would really appreciate your help with this removing this nasty piece of code!

Thank you!


(I also included the most recent MalwareBytes scan. I'm keeping the problem file in quarantine until advised to do otherwise.)
