1. Thank you for the answer but I don't know what PUP are.
2. maybe in "french".
3. An other way is if you could say me where this param is?  Kind regards.

1. PUP stands for Potentially Unwanted Program.
2. Sorry, I don't know the French term.
3. You can find it in all scan settings, as well as in some module settings.

GReat! Now I know what they are. For the others french users that is LPI which stand for "Logiciel Potentiellement Indésirable".

A big "merci" Asyn.

have a nice day.

Yontoo is adware that installs a web browser extension to display advertisements and special offers while surfing the Web. It works just fine with the major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome). Usually, this adware must be installed manually but it may also come bundled with other software, even with CNET’s own installer. You probably remember all these devastating reports about CNET adding adware to software available through the website, even free and open source applications.
