SAS finds PUP.bProtector

Recommended Posts

SAS was doing a scan and find 9 instances of PUP.bProtector. I was going back and forth between watching the scan and checking online for this threat and next thing I know SAS is starting all over again it again finding those 9 threats -- it's still running.

It just did it again. A window popped up in front of me telling me there are no threats checked to quarantine. It's like this PUP thing is now allowing it to check this and remove it.

Can anyone help with this?

You'll need to run a manual scan (not a scheduled scan) and put checkmarks next those items before clicking the Remove Threats button, PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs) are not removed by default. You may need to run the scan in safe mode with browsers closed for complete removal.
