Hi, I had PUP.SpyBoss in my computer I used MalwareBytes to remove it and was succesful as far as I can tell. I just want to know about this malware. Does it affect shortcut icons and favourites? I was getting a notice that a shortcut or favourite was not valid. I figured something was wrong so ran the free version of Malware bytes and it found PUP.SpyBoss and got rid of it for me. Any info about this malware would be appreciated. Thanks ht1
