PUP-riddled client after BitTorrent Install (with files)
« on: August 13, 2020, 06:50:51 PM »
Hello, dear Avast support.

After installing BitTorrent, I noticed a software named Quick Driver Update and a dubious install of Opera. There was nothing in the torrent, but in the actual client install itself, it's another story...

Malwarebytes found 39 threats concerning Quick Driver Updater. A vas mtajority are flagged as PUP.Optional.QuickDriverUpdater
(malwarebytes.txt file attached)

I ran an FRST scan (attached)

Then AdwCleaner (attached)

Currently runnning complete scan with Avast Free version. I don't remember what I need to do next, as it's been over 2 years since my last post. Hoping you are all doing well :)

Hello mate,
It would seem that MBAM has targeted the PUP and the job is done. I see no active malware on your system. The script below shall tell FRST to remove some inactive leftovers....

1. Open notepad and copy/paste the text present inside the code box below.
To do this highlight the contents of the box and right click on it. Paste this into the open notepad.

2. Save notepad as fixlist.txt to your Desktop.
NOTE: => It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

3. Run FRST/FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system to restart normally and let the tool completes its run after restart.

The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
Note: If the tool warned you about the outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Then it would be good thing to reset your browser Firefox and Chrome back to their default settings;

Tell me, how is your computer running now?
