I ran Malewarebytes and got many suspected threats (about 75). How do I determine what to quaranteen/delete/ignore? If I send the text file with the results, can you advise somehow?

Thanks.

Please send the text file.

I advise, however, to select them all and let MBAM clean them.

Honestly the only way to learn is to google each one.

The Way I work it is I look at the directory that it's in.  

If it's a program that I want or knowingly installed I leave it otherwise I remove it.

I do a combination of what aadih and kyle do.  I let mbam clean almost everything it finds, except for things I know may be PUPs but I want them anyway.  Sometimes merely excluding them doesn't do anything.

By "cleaning" them, do you mean quarantine, delete, or something else? I will send the text file shortly.

Thanks for your advice.

I believe malwarebytes deletes them.

I ran the scan several times, and each time when I clicked on Export file results, I got this error and had to close the program. Is it worthwhile troubleshooting the log issue or just try to have MBAM fix the issues detected, and see if that's possible.

Thomas,

Try fixing the detected issues on my PC, or the issue of not being able to create a text file log?

Thomas Zucker-ScharffSolution GuideCommented:
Sorry, try fixing the issues first, it may fix the problem with log file creation.  Make sure you are running MBAM with the antirookit checkbox checked (unchecked by default). Also you may want to try running chameleon if you haven't already.
