How do I handle PUPs?

Recommended Posts

My scan detects a slew of PUPs. It looks to me like most are maybe related to browser extensions. Anyway, I'm not sure what to do. If I quarantine, will that crash the extension or leave it inoperable?

Hello Nikilet,

PUP.Optional.SearchManager is a search function hijacker, it will monitor what you are doing with your browser Chrome, I strongly advise that you remove all of those entries identified by Malwarebytes.

When that is complete reboot your system, then make another scan to see if that nuisance has returned...

Thanks,

Kevin.

I did as you suggested and the scan was clear. Thanks!
