    I use MBAM along with AdwCleaner, since not one program gets everything 100%. I use the free version of Malwarebytes & run regular scans, once a week or more if I suspect something.

    Well I can see that yours does find them......but my Registered version of Malwarebytes has NEVER found even 1 pup. ??

    Where when I run Hitman Pro it does find them.....

    1. See post #9.
    2. Maybe that's because you have more than one of the same kind. Maybe there is a conflict. Maybe one catches all and Malwarebytes stops detecting. Maybe............................

    Don't need that app, as I have ones that work already Brog, was just finding it interesting that David's Malwarebytes finds his PUP's and mine which IS registered, has never found ANY....I mean not even 1 pup.

    If you read my post, Malwarebytes is only program that I run automatically. It runs 1st before anything else in the morning.

    Nothing running when it runs.....except firewall.

    ok......maybe I made a mistake, its not PUP's that Malwarebytes is not finding.....guess its a matter of the term PUP vs Tracking cookies.
    Is where I messed up. Malwarebytes is not looking for tracking cookies.
    Here is what HitMan pro just found, that Malwarebytes doesn't look for in its scan.

    @davidhk
    Hitman Pro just found 79 tracking cookies, where Malwarebytes does not look for Tracking cookies......I said PUP's and that was incorrect David.....that's my mistake.

    Avira free, Malwarebytes premium (lifetime), Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, Windows firewall, but most important of course: me, myself and I.

    No it runs fine David....no conflicts of any type.....does not find any PUP's cause I don't have any to find. Guess my firewall blocks them pretty well. :)
