MalwareBytes constantly finds stuff

Recommended Posts

So I was on a site when it sent me to another which quickly closed down and force installed an .exe file on my computer. Thankfully this was blocked from running by chrome but I got paranoid and installed MalwareBytes which found 18 files that was put in quarrantine. But today it started an automated scan where it found 14 files, so I manually started another 10 minutes after where it found 7 potentially unwanted files, and then another scan 5 minutes after the second one where it found 14 files once again. The first time it found 14 files I put them in quarrantine so they wouldn't be a problem. But when I checked the logs from the two scans where it found 14 files, the second scan had found the same 14 files once again about 15 minutes after the first. It seems like MalwareBytes fails to properly quarrantine the files which get found. I should also add that I always find these chrome files, for example these PUP.Optional.ASK and PUP.Optional.Linkury, both in folder form and file form. I would appreciate any help!
