I have downloaded Windows Defender. After running a Full Scan, Potentially Unwanted Software has been detected. The advice is: Permit this detected item only if you trust the program or the software publisher,
Then it says:

My question: How do I find out if whatever it is is harmful? Also - there is no option to remove or temporarily disable it.

I don`t think it`s harmful click here and click here so it really doesn`t need any action.

You can often search for problems of this nature by using Google and generally you will find others have asked the same question before you.

If you want to stop it appearing again add it to your `Allowed items` list (in Defender Tools/Allowed items).
