    Hi, I'm trying to get rid of PUP. Muzik.Fury. I have SpyHunter4, but it just keeps "removing" it and then finding it again.

    Any ideas how to get rid of PUPs?

    Thanks.

    Spyhunter is well known for false detections so it might not be a genuine detection

    Where exactly does Spyhunter say it keeps finding this PUP

    Hi Dvk01, I'm pasting the screenshot below. It looks like it's in Chrome/ User data... What do you think?

    Thanks,
    Garth
