Malwarebytes Anti-malware program has introduced a few new applications in their latest versions. Some of you may be aware of these -

They are mainly in the Settings area, for potentially unwanted problems "PUP" and peer to peer "P2P" detections.

If you wish to change these settings, it is quite simple -

Open Malwarebytes > Across the top of the MBAM program face, go to > Settings > Scanner Settings > Action for potentially unwanted programs "PUP";
Now use the drop-down menu to select > Show Results / Do not show Results / ETC -

The same menu actions are available for peer-to-peer software; "P2P" -

Thank You -

Sorry, this was missed in my first post, but it also has the same settings available as the PUP and P2P settings -

Thank You -

You're welcome.

And for those reading this topic who may not known....a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) is a very broad threat category which can encompass any number of different programs to include those which are benign as well as malicious. They may also be defined somewhat differently by various security vendors.
