hello - first time posting on this forum!
my dad, whos not great at computers (neither am I, hence the reason for my post here) clicks on a lot of stuff that he shouldnt. so i ran malwarebytes and it cleaned up a lot but not everything would go away.
a) how do I get rid of this extra junk? its stuff like "pup.installbrain" and "pup.gamesplaylab"
then i went into his control panel and "uninstall a program" and there was a ton of extra junk again! i tried deleting/uninstalling as much as i could.
b)how do I know which programs to get rid of and which are legit/should be kept? there are probably 40-50 programs listed - im sure many are ok but a lot do not.
I have pictures of both the malwarebytes screenshot as well as the programs he has installed and ive attached pictures of them...hope it works.
any help is much appreciated!
(note: im not 100% sure he has windows 7 - im making a logical guess...i dont think it matters too much in relation to my specific questions but if so i can find out exactly which operating system he has)
there are 2 more pictures i wanted to attach but it wont let me
