Apologies if  this is not the  correct section. I had a problem finding a section dealing with this defrag software.

 

I have used Auslogics defrag for years and find it very good.  BUT MBAM always picks up a great many Pup's after using a number of Auslogics defrags. Once MBAM found around 150 Auslogic Pup's and 50 + is not unusual.

 

Oddly enough, MBAM picks up all these Pup's during the heuristics scan at the end of the scan process. Other malware scan programs I use do not pick up any such Auslogic Pup's although their settings do include Pup's as an item to scan for.

 

Can anybody comment on this ?

I'm having the same problem, also picking up Auslogic regcleaner as well.

Andrew,

Perhaps some genius will see our plight and provide an answer. I hope so, the fact that MBAM picks up hundreds of Auslogic Pup's and other reputable programs do not gives me the collywobbles.

 

Surely we cannot have TWO definitions of what a Pup is ?

1. A Pup as defined by MBAM.

2. A Pup as defined by the rest of the world.

Hello,
 
The program is flagged because it meets the standards set out in Malwarebytes' PUP policy. For further insight, you may wish to consider reading the following Malwarebytes article and a post describing a fellow user's experience.
 
If you've intentionally installed the program, you can by all means exclude it from detection within Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

  • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and click the SETTINGS tab.
  • On the left hand side, click Detection and Protection.
  • Look for the 'Non-Malware Detections' portion and change the PUP and PUM settings to Warn user about detections.
  • Ensure the program in question is fully installed and then run a Threat Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. When the scan completes, uncheck the boxes next to each of the detections.
    Note: To uncheck all at once, click the uppermost box next to the 'Threats' column title.
  • Click the Next button.
  • Click Ignore always. After this, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will no longer detect the program.
     

If you have Malwarebytes 3.0 installed, please refer to the instructions below.

  • Launch Malwarebytes and click the Settings menu.
  • Click the Protection tab and scroll down to Potential Threat Protection.
  • In the drop-down box under Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) and Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUMs), select Warn User.
  • Ensure the program in question is fully installed and then run a Threat Scan with Malwarebytes. When the scan completes, uncheck the boxes next to each of the detections.
    Note: To uncheck all of them at once, click the uppermost checkbox next to the 'Severity' column title.
  • Click the Next button.
  • Click Ignore always. After this, Malwarebytes will no longer detect the program.

@ Liquid Tension - Malware Response Instructor

 

I appreciate greatly your instructions for having these Pup's ignored, but as I do not favour hundreds of them accumulating, I may as well let MBAM (I have version 3) delete them. But you telling me how to opt out is  great help.

 

Sorry about the coloured text, it is because I copied and pasted your user name and again thanks for you time.

If you disable the WYSIWYG editor, it won't happen :)

Unless we are still dealing with Windows XP, who actually defrags more than, say, annually if dealing with Win7 or later, anyway? :)

If one is using an "older" HD, sometimes defragging the HD makes the backup routine go a little bit faster.

If you want auslogics, Uninstall what you have and let MB clean it up. Download the portable version and use that, It is not detected at this time.
