    Can somebody interpret this output from MBAM please

    My suspicions were raised when browsing a local news site and Edge couldn't open the page and I was left looking at the refresh the page or search options. Then I noticed the address in the bar began with something like SSL-cam/gibberish etc etc /search%SMH. Apologies, but I hastily closed the browser and didn't copy the exact string.

    By the way SMH is the website I was trying to view.

    I ran the free version of MBAM and it wouldn't run. Stuck at updating and the time elapsed ticking over. I closed MBAM and ran it in Chameleon mode with the following output saved;

    Now the reason I ask about this is that I tried using several all-in-one homepages and MyStart.com happened to be one of them. So if I'm not mistaken this just confirms my stupidity.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Only I didn't have any toolbars installed. There was absolutely no sign of any malevolent activity or oddness over the last week or so until the strange behaviour of Edge not being able to display my news site this morning, and of course the strange url it returned above.

    It is generally safe to allow MBAM to remove what it finds.

    Those detections are all PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
    See here as well:
    Malwarebytes gets tougher on PUPs | Malwarebytes Labs

    PUPs are not malware, per se, but they are considered junk/crap and most folks do not want them on their computers.
    They are typically installed either intentionally -- because the user wants the program -- or inadvertently (as some sort of bundled "freebie"along with a standard program, and the user does not opt out during installation).

    Eventually, having that crap on your system can lead to more serious stuff.
    I would not want any of that on my system.
    (Some of them can be hard to fully remove, necessitating multiple scans with multiple, additional malware removal tools or custom scripts. So I would rescan again after removal, to be sure you are clean.)

    On the other hand, if you want to keep any of those (NOT recommended), you can follow the steps here.

    Thanks MoxieMomma,

    I understand a little more of what those results mean now.

    Many thanks.
