Can't get rid of PUP.Optional.PSScriptLoad.EncJob

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am in need of help in the removal of a Malwarebytes detection within my registry.

Whenever I scan I consistently find PUP.Optional.PSScriptLoad.EncJob being detected, and no matter how many times I quarantine and remove it, it returns. I have attached a scan report and a Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Report. I hope that you will be able to help me with this issue.

Scan Log 7-7-17.txt

Hello @Hith0 and :welcome:


Please start an elevated Admin level Command Prompt and type the following exactly and press the Enter key after each line.

SCHTASKS /Query /FO LIST /V >"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\MyScheduledTasks.txt"

reg export "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console" "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\MyConsoleSettings.txt" /y

Then locate on your desktop the file MyScheduledTasks.txt and MyConsoleSettings.txt  then attach them back on your next reply and I'll take a look and see what's going on.

Thank you

Please save the attached file hkcu_console_fix.zip to your computer. Then locate it and double-click to open it and inside is a registry fix. Double-click on that and allow it to merge into the registry to fix the Console setting.



Then run the following fix for the other portion.

NOTE: This fix also tells your computer to run a Full Disk Check. This can possibly take a couple hours to run depending on the speed of your computer. Please let it complete on reboot.


Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.
