Windows 7: Pup.tarma.options blah blah got in my Toshiba

Ok I review DDS and ran it. Got two note pads of text.

Not sure it is safe to share details of my computer processes with you or general public.

Remember, I've also already deleted the pups, so maybe you can tell me what to look for.

I know the date and time-- 8/29 4:30PM --- when I ran Malwarebytes, so sometime before that is when I got the pups.

Thx r6

PUP can be part of any program you install. I actually found a remnant of PUP.optional.softonic this past week, a single temp file that I got as part of one of my gog.com game installs. You typically have to uncheck certain bloatware they pack with their games such as Adobe reader, and from what I can tell one of the games left the temporary file behind after the installer quit. Even though I checked not to install the Softonic thing it still left part of its installer that wasn't cleaned out and Malwarebytes flagged it.

PUP may not necessarily be malware, though some, such as Delta toolbar are.

rybosix, it's safe to post! .... no one has anyway to access your computer with the DDS logs.
All I want to see is what the .txt logs show ME!

IP addresss or addresses, or ID addresses or whatever.

I had four of these note pads were pinned to my task bar but when i closed them the vanished all together

I could not click on there corners to shorten them either. I closed the last two before looking at them thinking the would stay on desktop were there is still one left.

Isuppose I could run the dds again create new notepads and scan all of them for the word pup.tarma.

You could do that again, but DDS won't show you "pup.tarma", unless you know how to read the.txt logs
