Do you want testing pups (in czech language "pupy"). What avast means testing pups? I can choose on or off.

PUP is the industry standard name for a Potentially Unwanted Program.  I think it would be more confusing to call it anything else, as most IT professionals and other tech savvy people are familiar with the term.

sorry i dont know whether its a good idea.. do not use abbreviated words or hide this option, automatically to keep running. I do not think that would be affected when you turn on real time scanner, or result in scanning disk partitions.

I will see I already know what it takes but 95% of users would be to watch and ask myself what is it for a shortcut

Has anyone tried using this feature in scans?  (The P.U.P)  Is it Great, Good, Average, or Indifferent?  I don't think 4.8 had this, or if it did it was built into the program and activated by default.
