Automatic removal of PUPS, quarantine

Recommended Posts

Recently after each daily scan Malwarebytes has been reporting a particular PUP that it's asking if I want to quarantine. I always do want to, so I click on quarantine. However, I'd rather that Malwarebytes just quarantine all PUPs on its own without asking. In my settings under protection I have automatic quarantine turned on. Shouldn't it be doing this automatically? If not, is there something I'm missing? It never used to do this, but it's possible that one of the websites I visit is causing the PUP.

If this is in your scheduled scan, you can see this setting under the advanced options in the scheduled scan.

Got it Devin. Don't know why it just started this behavior though. It was unchecked, so I've corrected that and we'll see what happens. Thanks!
