About BehavesLike.Win32.PUP.dh

BehavesLike.Win32.PUP.dh detection by your malware removal program indicates you have a generic potentially not wanted program (PUP) installed. PUPs aren’t severe infections, since they don’t have the primary intention of harming your system. So as to prevent being detected and removed, the PUP might be disguised as some kind of practical application. The PUP may be a disguised system cleaner or anti-virus program, a game, or a browser plug-in. When programs attempt to install via software bundling without explicitly requesting permission and request users to pay for services that do not actually work, they’re usually classified as PUPs. Fake system optimization utilities and security programs will employ scare tactics to fool you into buying the complete program, while you will be regularly seeing ads if you are dealing with a questionable browser plug-in. Because PUPs are unlikely to be useful to you, you should uninstall BehavesLike.Win32.PUP.dh.

How are PUPs spread

It is possible you installed the PUP yourself, thinking it’s a handy program. If you wish to avoid suspicious program installations in the future, do more research about the applications.

If you do not pay attention to program installation, you will not be able to avoid these unnecessary items. Only if you pick Advanced (Custom) option will you be able to make the offers visible. You can unmark everything that has been added once it is made visible.
