Malwarebytes reports problems coming from here. I'd appreciate advice on how to proceed. I see some regular reports suggesting to start with FRST and adding the 2 txt files FRST & Addition. However it occured to me that I ran a quarantine from MWBytes after running these, so please let me know if I should re-run. I'd also love to learn how to read an understand the fix if you have any advice on how to proceed. Thanks! nb

Hello,


Can you export MalwareBytes reports so we can see what is going on?

This all started a little over a week ago when I was using my work VPN on my personal PC. My work admin detected a virus on my PC (how, I don't know) and shut down my VPN. I downloaded Malwarebytes at the advice of my office PC support. Every scan keeps showing the same number (22) of pup.optional.incredibar. I quarantine them and they reappear. I also see live website blocks periodically from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe. Will getting rid of the Adware resolve this, and how do I find it and get rid of it? Thanks!

MalwareBytes stores Website blocked and Scan log reports. Can you export the latest Website blocked report where it shows regsvr32.exe?

I don't know why, but I am no longer getting reports of website blocks. However I keep getting 22 PUPs when I scan, quarantine, and scan again they're still there. If these seem innocuous or if you think a different scan might reveal something, I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks again for your assistance!
