I'm using MBAM Pro 22.214.171.1240 with database 2013.08.04.03 on a Win 7 64 bit computer. Today I decided to run a full scan, for no particular reason. In the past, MBAM has almost NEVER found anything to report, neither on a quick scan nor a full scan. Today, however, it identified 24 items as problematic. All were identified as PUP.Optional.Babylon.A except for one that was PUP.Optional.Ask.Toolbar. I'm assuming that none of these is something to worry about. I've had the Babylon Pro dictionary on my computer for years, and never before has MBAM (or any other security program) called attention to it. As for the lone Ask.Toolbar entry, it was the installation file for the KM Player, and it has been on my computer for about two years, and again, no one has flagged it before. IIRC, the installation file may try to get unwary users to install the Ask Toolbar, but I certainly did not do so. So I have three questions:
1) Am I right in thinking that I can simply ignore MBAM's results?
2) Is there a way of telling MBAM not to report these same results again? (I pressed Ignore, but nothing seemed to happen)
3) Why did MBAM suddenly call attention to these files, when it had never done so before?
I'm attaching a file of MBAM's reports, with my username blurred out.
