PUP.Optional.Legacy Chrome Extension


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm getting a pup alert for 2 chrome extensions even though I have none.

I have reinstalled chrome, and also used regular Malewarebytes.

I am concerned as I have been getting random website popups. The recent one was a redirect to some recipe website, 


but it was mostly just google.com randomly opening without me clicking on anything.

I've included the log files and the photo of the result page.

Help would be truly appreciated.
