PUP.Optional.SweetPage Keeps Coming Back

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what is going on but these files keep coming back each day. I ran ADWCleaner and it found files that Malwarebytes didn't. From the location we initially thought it was due to the client using their personal Gmail account to sync with their work Chome account, but after removing all the Chrome Extensions and then turning off the sync the issue remains, the same files are picked up and quarantined every day. Interestingly, when running two scans one after the other, the first scan finds the files and quarantines them, and the second scan doesn't find anything. The next day they are back. Any ideas how to kill it off for good? (assuming it isn't a false positive).

Note that I have replaced the username of the individual with USERNAME.
