Whats the point? I run Malwarebytes scans (qiuck and full scans) and it finds PUP.Option malware and I elect to remove it but if I run another scan an hour later its back again? (I also have Norton) Win8.1 64bit

Are you able to provide file name and extension of the PUP. Also is it the same one reoccurring in the same location?

ADWCleaner worked for me with the same problem highside.

Thanks for replies still ongoing Zak Have downloaded ADWCleaner but not sure what to untick, if I create a restore point I guess it would be safe to let the program delete all it found? Can it be used in the way I have used CCleaner for years where I trust it and have never had a problem?

Yes

just let it delete every thing it finds to be safe.

I did that no problem it removed many files & folders it found. Unfortunately Malwarebytes still shows PUP.options.

I see that AdwCleaners Tools menu offers an anti PUP download but it looks a bit complex to me.

PS having used AdwCleaner as per previous post Google Chrome no longer works. It will only open once unless PC is restarted when it will open one more time again etc,etc. If I click the icon to reopen chrome once it has been used and closed nothing happens. I reinstalled Chrome same result.

Try using Revo to uninstall it completely. Reboot and try a new installation.

What PUP files are showing up in MBAM?

In MBAM click on the history tab and it will show what's been quarantined.
