PUP is not virus.  https://www.virusbtn.com/resources/glossary/potentially_unwanted.xml

A very good PUP remover is Malwarebytes

it is probably some adware crap that is bundled with the program

you may upload and test the file here  www.virustotal.com  if tested before, click rescan for a fresh result
post link to scan result here, then we may be able to tell you what it is
