Why is AdwCleaner showing this company as PUP, yes some of their programs are but not all .  So simply have this name ( Auslogics ) AdwCleaner show it as PUP . Auslogics Windows Slimmer is okay but if one does download the program and goes to install there are other programs added on but all one needs to do is unslected them and just use Auslogics Windows Slimmer. And I find this program alone is okay . OR is Malwarebyes / Adwcleaner saying other wise ?

There's your answer right there.  Bundled installers specifically are something that Malwarebytes deliberately targets aggressively under the PUP category.  You can read about a related example, Auslogics Disk Defrag, here where they cite specifically:

Auslogics products are sometimes downloaded willingly by users and sometimes included in bundlers.

I know that ... All one need to do is unselected them and they wouldn't get installed . My point is if you use just the program itself and do a scan afterwards with AdwCleaner ... AdwCleaner will flag 4 files from  Auslogics  which serves no purpose

Hello,

Can you provide a whole logfile please?

Thanks,

I have done scans with other security software companies and none has shown it to be malware
