About PUP.Optional.ValueApps

PUP.Optional.ValueApps is the generic detection name assigned to generic possibly unwanted programs, one of which could be inhabiting your device. Such programs aren’t categorized as serious infections since your harmed PC is not their primary intention. It wouldn’t be surprising if the PUP is concealing itself as some type of useful application. It’s often the case that they are concealed as anti-virus programs, computer optimizers, browser extensions or games. PUPs are fundamentally applications that can install without you having to allow it explicitly, and then use scare tactics to make you buy worthless services. If you are dealing with anti-virus programs or system optimizers, the application will try to scare you to encourage you to buy the complete version, while you’ll be exposed to constant adverts if your PUP is a browser extension. It’s categorized as a PUP for a reason, therefore we recommend you uninstall PUP.Optional.ValueApps.

How do PUPs install

You could have easily installed the potentially unwanted application yourself, trusting it to be some kind of handy piece of software. Carrying out extensive research about applications you install will help you avoid future PUPs installation.

The bundling method could have also been used to install the program without requiring your permission. The way the method works is pretty simple. Junk programs are usually added to freeware as extra offers, unless you manually deselect them, they are set to install alongside. The reason many users end up not deselecting those items is because they simply do not see them as they’re not instantly obvious.

In order to prevent these unnecessary installations, pay attention to when installing software. Default settings will not show you if anything has been attached, so pick Advanced (Custom) options if you are given the choice. In addition to seeing what has been added, you will have the option of unmarking all items.

Should you be concerned with PUP.Optional.ValueApps

For some generic PUP infections, widespread security applications like Kaspersky, Symantec, Avast, Malwarebytes, TrendMicro and ESET will use PUP.Optional.ValueApps as the detection name. Even if major security applications identify it as a potential infection, it does not mean it’ll harm your system in a severe way. PUPs don’t intend to damage your device, and instead focus on making revenue by deceiving you into purchasing applications or by exposing you to ads. No matter what type of PUP is installed on your device, an ad increase is one of the initial signs of an infection.

Paid versions of PUPs would be a waste of money, and we would like to remind you that before finishing. We should also mention that because ads by PUPs are rather harmful, you should avoid interacting with them.
