Problems removing a PUM proxy hijacker

Recommended Posts

I'm having problems removing 2 PUM programs from my computer.  The first one is PUM.Optional.ProxyHijacker, HKU\S-1-5-18\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS|PROXYENABLE, Removal Failed, [7997], [-1],0.0.0  

and the second one is:  PUM.Optional.ProxyHijacker, HKU\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS|PROXYENABLE, Removal Failed, [7997], [-1],0.0.0


I've used Malwarebytes for many years and have never had this problem.  I'm attaching three screenshots to show what it showed after the scan finished.  If someone can help me resolve this problem I'd sure appreciate it.  Thanks in advance.
