I just ran Malwarebytes and there were 322 items removed. Plenty of PUP and PUG. I haven't seen any of the inline text since then. Hopefully that got rid of them.

Wow you need to keep a eye on installs from Cnet they have a little menu with accept or decline when trying to sneak in addware and people think it's just the program asking for permission and it's the total opposite

How often do you run scans? 322 is a awful lot of PUP and PUG. I'm not sure what a PUG is.

Monday was my first day back at work since before Christmas. Everyone had new computers. They were Dell with OEM installs. Who knows what kind of malware was in there.

If you buy new PCs from OEMs, you are probably all too familiar with the plague known as "crapware": the useless applications that come installed with Windows. Crapware wastes space, often ties up your RAM and CPU power, and can be a major hassle to get rid up. Luckily, there's a solution. These five applications will help you deal with the crapware quickly and safely.
