I got a notice on my taskbar from MB that my website protection was disabled and to click on it to enable it.  So I did then I decided to run a scan with MB and there was an update to MB so I did that first and then ran a scan and it came up with  PUP.Optional.Searchprotect.A so I deleted it and scanned again and it came up with a clean system.  Over the past few days I have been downloading things like SDK and roms for my phone but I scanned all of them with MB and they were always clean. Should I be worried that there could be something left over from this? I have not done anything else at this time.


Thanks for any help.

Hi statos.


:step1: Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.

  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.





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 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.


Thank you.

If I don't reply back to you in 2 days, feel free to send me a PM.

For some reason my notepad has been screwed up for a long time so JRT wont generate a notepad popup report. Would it be anywhere else?
