Possible false positive - PUP.Optional.Yontoo.ChrPRST

Since 2/20/17, scans have been detecting signs of PUP.Optional.Yontoo.ChrPRST which I believe to be a false positive. The scan I performed 24 hours prior did not show this detection and nothing of consequence was installed during that period that I can recall.  When I quarantine the affected items, my Windows profile is significantly affected; therefore, I restored all quarantined items for the time being.

I would appreciate it if someone can confirm this suspected false positive and make the appropriate adjustments to the signature files.

Thanks.

I wish I had a more detailed description, but, essentially, all desktop and interface customizations specific to my Windows profile were gone, replaced by Windows' defaults. I also received an error message that a temporary profile was loaded, likely due to files/registry entries related to my profile were quarantined by MBAM.
