Correct settings for MBAM?

Here are my settings for MBAM.

Correct settings for MBAM?-2014-10-22_2013.png

Are these the right settings as I get numerous PUP warnings when scanning?

Also shows Astromenda Search tab at top which I think I had checked the wrong box in settings/extension I use Chrome as my browser.

Hi Dennis,

Yes. Those settings are correct. Make sure to click Apply Actions to allow MBAM to clean what was detected.

That Astromenda Search is a beast to get rid of!

Same as my settings.
Let us know how it goes to get rid of Astromenda Search tab.

I'm thinking that AdwCleaner from Bleeping Computer might also help.

Then for another check I use this often when needed.

Hi Dennis,
You can activate Scan for Rootkits and do a custom scan and make sure all drives are selected or at the very least C
It's good to do this at least once but it is slow depending on the size and how many drives you have
After doing it once you should be good,

@ The Howling Wolves

You do look clean so far. AdwCleaner didn't find much and that is good. But one program might not catch everything. I like the program. Having said that I have had times when using Eset On Line scanner it finds things other scans have missed.

I don't use many of these scans often, just when I think I might have a little goodie I didn't want.
Then I use many different scans TCMA.
You already know you had a infection. (Astromenda Search) If it was my computer I would check to see if Astromenda brought some friends to the party.

As ThrashZone has suggested; scanning for rootkits using Malwarebytes is a good thing but it will take time also. It all depends on the size of the drive and your system. That is another good reason to use SSD when possible; it will speed up these types of scans in large measures.

The programs I suggest I have used many times without problems. Their are many good programs for this type of problem. I just haven't used them yet.

Note: I Layback Bear I'm not a security expert. These suggestion are my methods I use on my systems.

Thank you both as I ran both scans and the root kit scan and all came back clean.
Had made one change and if I can remember where it was I will post back as it removed the Astromenda Search tab.
Let me go find it and post back.

One time I went into Google settings and changed the radio button to the one in yellow.
Then I noticed all these tabs at the top along with Astromenda Search tab. Being an old geezer I finally went back and checked the one with the red arrow. Since doing this the Astromenda Search went away.
