pup optional.easylife

Recommended Posts

I downloaded malware paid version 3.71 and ran it. It indicated that I am infected with optional.easylife. I quarantined it and deleted it but it keeps coming back after a restart.

I researched it on the malwarebytes forums but none of the instruction seem to apply IE: remove a program called easylife search..there is none. Scan again and go to the history tab.. thee is none. It show examples of the malwarebytes program that doesnt match 3.71.

Im stuck! I thought malwarebytes was to protect and remove PUPS.

How to proceed in removing this optional.easylife?
