Just wondering about these 2 PUPs that avast! seemed to pick up. Uplayer seems safe by checking google but as to this DomalQ-AK I have no idea about.

 

Will try scanning with MBAM also and will see what I get. If you have any information on either of these I'd love it if you could help! :)

 

Thanks,

 

Hermesx :hello:

 

Edit: Follow the file path of where they were found, turns out that they were downloaded last night with the file for domalQ being just called "Setup". This seems a lot more fishy now. Also, MBAM has flagged it as "PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller". My question is how could I have possibly gotten this?

 

Edit: It seems that both of the setup files for both of the PUPs were downloaded at the exact same time last night, so I now suspect both. Also, I've looked in my programs list and I can't find either of these programs. They are also not running as processes in task manager (unless disguised).

 

Edit: Have rid myself of the files and now doing scans with superantispyware, avast, mbam, tdsskiller and ccleaner. I know, I'm paranoid. :blush:

Given that Ask toolbar is often listed as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) I wouldn't worry too much. Or is it causing some problem other than worry?

It is causing no other problems besides being worried about it. I only find it suspicious because it was uninstalled without my consent and until now I was totally oblivious to having it. There is no visual toolbar on chrome at all also! Weird yeah?
