PUP.Optional.InstallCore.A

6 posts in this topic

I ran Malwarebytes today as I usually do once a week quick scan. I was a bit shocked to see it say 2 items found. I have quarantined them at the moment as I have no idea what or where it is, or indeed if it is harmful or not.

 

Should I just keep them quarantined or can I delete them - this is a bit scary. here is the log

I deleted it from the quarantined box as I never had any issues on PC while it was quarantined.

 

PC seems fine, but I will more than double check the next time I download something. As InstallCore is some method people use to install stuff better on your PC. or something to that effect.

Okay if you're sure everything is okay for you now I'll go ahead then and close this topic so others don't post off topic on it.
