Malwarebytes has quarantined the PUP spigot.generic google chrome on my husband's computer (and a few clients) on three separate occasions. One client got a pop up requesting to not turn off her computer and to call a phone number which seems to be related.
- Why does PUP spigot.generic google chrome keep coming back - I have run MBAM (premium), SAS, Adwcleaner and CCleaner, I didn't go further since it appeared to be a simple PUP
- How and why do people get popups on their desktop to contact a company to "fix" their computer
On MBAM's site a suggestion (https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/154762-pupoptionalspigota-chrome-preferences/
) was to run ZOEK by Smeenk, I've never heard of it.
I appreciate your assistance! I have attached the most recent report from MBAM.
