Hi and thanks in advance for any help.  MBAM found Trojan.BlockAV and some other stuff.  I removed/fixed/quarantine everything, except this: "PUP.Optional.IoloSC, HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL".  There are a bunch of letters and numbers behind the "uninstall", which I have not included in this post, but could if it's needed.  This is on a different computer than the one I am currently using.  Is this safe to remove from the registry key?  I am concerned since it says uninstall and Windows... don't want to uninstall Windows if that is what this is pointing to (I'm not very familiar with registry stuff).  Thanks again for any help.

As a general rule Bleeping Computer does not close (lock) topics in this forum. An exception to that rule is when a member has been asked to (and does) start a new topic in the Malware Removal Logs forum and posts the required logs. Another exception is when we refer members to post their questions or comments in an existing discussion topic such as those for specific ransomware infections.
