About PUP.Optional.UpdatePlatform

PUP.Optional.UpdatePlatform detected by your malware elimination program possibly means a generic possibly not wanted program (PUP) is inhabiting your device. PUPs normally do not directly harm the system, hence why they are thought to be pretty minor threats. Developers of PUPs don’t want their products to be deleted, hence why they’re concealed as seemingly handy applications. The PUP may be a game or a browser extension, an security utility or a system optimizer. PUPs are essentially applications that can install without you having to authorize it explicitly, and then try to deceive you into purchasing worthless services. You will regularly be nagged to buy worthless software if you are dealing with a PUP that claims to be a system optimization application or a security program, and ads will regularly interrupt your browsing if the PUP is a browser add-on. It is strongly encouraged that you erase PUP.Optional.UpdatePlatform as it will be of no use to you.

The only way you may block those offers from installing is if you actually pay attention to software installations. Only if you pick Advanced (Custom) settings will you see what has been added. When the items become visible, you’ll have the choice of unchecking them.
