PUP.Optional.IoloSC

Recommended Posts

I got the following report this evening after malwarebytes autoscanned after booting

PUP.Optional.IoloSC, HKU\S-1-5-21-1670381165-2277342764-3273756976-1000\SOFTWARE\IOLO\System Mechanic, , [d4bed80a6832c5717efc6f2f4eb2946c],


System Mechanic is a valid program afaik which I've used for a long time from Iolo Labs so I'm not sure what to do at present

 

I've attached the log malwarebytes.txt

Thank you for your response but I don't quite understand how it's classified as a PUP.

System Mechanic is a program paid for by subscription, not a piece of adware bundled with dodgy freeware. I'm not questioning that it's a valid detection but "why" it is. I've used it for some while now and it has been very useful for system maintenance but if it is dangerous I'll remove it immediately.

Many thanks

The above question is rather academic now as I've removed System Mechanic and replaced it with CCleaner which is much better, but I am curious as to why System Mechanic is considered a PUP
