I just ran malwarebytes after installing the free software, Advanced System Care 3, and I received 16 infections all labeled PUP.Dealio. Malware didn't take any action on these. Are these items I should have removed from my computer. Thanks for any help.

Hello and :wacko:

These are being tagged as PUP (Potentiall Unwanted Program).

The software you installed, Advanced System Care 3, is a program made by Iobit. This company has been know to have very shady practices, and has even had a runin with Malwarebytes. (you can search this site for Iobit and you will find how much folks don't like this company due to their practices).

If I were you I would uninstall any Iobit software from my computer, and once that is done, update your Malwarebytes, run a quick scan, and remove any items it detects.
