Hello @SpeedyRecover and :welcome:

These are PUPs (Possibly Unwanted Programs). Typically a PUP either does advertising or says it does something but it does not unless you pay, it may have been bundled and installed without the user's knowledge.

Old blog about PUPs here
https://blog.malwarebytes.com/malwarebytes-news/2016/10/malwarebytes-gets-tougher-on-pups/

If you have any questions or need further assistance with scanning or cleaning please let me know.

Thanks

Ron

I see, do you think it was stealing my information? passwords etc?

No, these are just something I'd probably call annoyances. There should be no threat of taking your information
