I open up a post in regard to 3 (pup.optional.open.candy) file that Malware Bytes full scan found on my laptop. The administrator asked me to run DDS and post the "attach.txt" and "DDS.txt" results in here.
I attached both Attach.txt and DDS.txt here.
And here is the question I posted:
Last Tuesday (08/06/2013), my daily malware bytes quick scan idicated 12 files that required to be removed. These were registry files in the Microsoft Office folder. I removed and restarted my laptop. My MS Office 2007 has issue starting, but my MS Office 2010 manages to open up the documents.
Once started up, I ran a full scan using Malware Bytes, and the result was that I had a clean computer (0 infect files).
Yesterday (08/11/2013), I ran my anti virus Avast, which indicated that I had 0 infected files. Then I ran malware bytes full scan. The scan resulted in finding 3 "pup optional open candy". I removed the files and restarted the laptop. Once started, I ran the malwarebytes scan again, which resulted in 0 infected files.
My question is, why this is keep occuring? Is my laptop infected? And if so, what do I need to do to clean it up for good?
Please let me know if I can provide you with further information.
Thanks in advance.
