Please help me.  I remove PUP.Optional.Bandoo.A using Malware Bytes, but it keeps being placed back into the registry.  How do I remove the "seed" source of PUP.Optional.Bandoo.A  on my computer that keeps re-inserting this malware?

ADW Cleaner

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Clean.
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Bleepin Madman,


   Thank you for the reply.  I will download the malware removal programs that you suggested.  I hope they are able to remove the "seed" portion of the PUP.Optional.Bandoo.A that keeps re-consitituting that program into the register.  Malware Bytes removes the program from the register, then, before long, the program is re-established back in the registry, so Malware Bytes is ineffective in removing the source of the Bandoo.A.  What is the purpose of you wanting me to post the contents of the logs?
