Just scanned my computer today and received warnings that did not appear when i scanned the day before. I am personally not very keen with computers and i was wondering if it was possible that someone on these forums could help me decipher this foreign language and tell me what to do.

 

Thanks

Greetings and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Those entries are of no real concern and you can safely have Malwarebytes remove them. They are not virus related but rather are more of an annoyance you and your computer can do without. PUP stands for Potentially Unwanted Program. Often times these are programs that are bundled with legitimate downloads and are automatically installed on your computer unless you opt out. Many times you will not even notice the opt out section.

Does this make sense?
