My internet was unusually slow today so I decided to use Malwarebytes to scan for viruses. It detected 22 items all called pup.OPTIONAL.tarma.a. I deleted all of them but I am worried I still might be infected, any idea what I should do?

Hi -

First these are all Potentially Unwanted Programs that have been found. Always delete them.

 

Now - Update and Re-run the MBAM scan and check if any PUP items still exist - Also a Full scan with your Antivirus.

These will only return if you visit, or download from sites that contain these infectins.

 

Thank You -
