I have scanned my computer for offending malware and found over 1300 instances!
I need to mark these for removal, obviously, but the programme doesn't seem to allow the user to conduct a "mass pick", (i.e. tick every box without having to do it individually).
Is there a method of doing this because picking over 1300 items is going to take quite a while?

Under Advance Settings > Advanced Options...you can check the box to "Automatically quarantine detected items"

In v1.75, PUP detections show up unchecked on the results list by default and you have to manually check each one for removal. If you want Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove PUP detections, each item must be checked. If provided a lengthly list of PUPS to check and remove, to do so quickly, you can highlight one of the detections by left clicking on it. Then, right click on the highlighted detection, and select 'Check all items'. Next, click Remove Selected. See Selecting all PUPs for removal.
