PUP.Optional.TorrentSearch


Recommended Posts

Getting a daily hit on a chrome extension - I run a bunch; any way to figure out which it is with removing them all and adding them back one by one?

Error:

PUP.Optional.TorrentSearch, HKU\S-1-5-21-2269347947-1967521367-271911928-1001\SOFTWARE\GOOGLE\CHROME\PREFERENCEMACS\DEFAULT\EXTENSIONS.SETTINGS|AFBPDHICLGGHNFFHKINJIKGLGMOLHPEE, No Action By User, 2137, 998886, 1.0.67675, , ame, , ,

Hello. My name is Maurice. I will guide you.

Do a new scan with Malwarebytes for Windows.

Do a Check for Update using the Malwarebytes Settings >> General tab.

See this Support Guide https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042187934-Check-for-updates-in-Malwarebytes-for-Windows

When it shows a new version available, Accept it and let it proceed forward. Be sure it succeeds.

If prompted to do a Restart, just please follow all directions.

Let me know how that goes. Next, the Malwarebytes >>Settings >>

Then click the Security tab. Scroll down and lets be sure the line in SCAN OPTIONs for

"Scan for rootkits" is ON 👈 Click it to get it ON if it does not show a blue-color .

 

Next, click the small x on the Settings line to go to the main Malwarebytes Window. Next click the blue button marked Scan.

 

When the scan phase is done, be real sure you Review and have all detected lines items check-marked on each line on the left. That too is very critical.

>>>>>👉You can actually click the topmost left check-box on the very top line to get ALL lines ticked ( all selected).  <<<<💢

Please double verify you have that TOP  check-box tick marked.   and that then, all lines have a tick-mark

 

Then click on Quarantine  button.
