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)
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?
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.
Thanks but I had already removed the two malware programs as part of the attempt to normalize things.
Fixed Chrome by resetting my Chrome profile using a procedure I found on the web and it worked perfectly.
Path in basic terms,
C: Users- Name- AppData- Local- Google Chrome- User Data-Default
The 'Default' entry was changed to 'Back up Default' and Chrome works correctly again. (ignore qoutation marks)
Now back to PUP.Options ongoing.
Original poster -
Fixed Chrome by changing my Chrome profile.
Original problem remains spent a long time on it, advice appreciated.
1) I never download unless Norton says the file is safe.
2) Adware Removal Tool finds PC clean of PUPs
3) Malwarebytes continues to find PUPs which are removed but it finds them or even more the next time I use it.
Today it finds 8 PUP.Optional.Linkey.A for example. (straight after Adware Removal Tool reported nothing.)
Is there a (possibly paid) program that removes malware completely?
