PUP.Optional.WinZipSystemProtector detected by your malware elimination program probably means you have a generic possibly not wanted application (PUP) in your PC.

PUP distribution methods

It is possible you set up the potentially unwanted program yourself, if you were deceived into believing in the benefits of the software. So as to avoid suspicious application installations in the future, we suggest doing thorough research about the applications.

PUPs also use the bundling method to install on users’ computers unseen. The bundling technique is an often used technique but you may not know how it works. In many cases, free software have additional offers attached to it, and have to be deselected. The reason so many users end up not deselecting those items is because they just do not notice them as they are undisclosed.

We recommend you start paying attention to software installations if you want to prevent the undesirable items from installing. In order to make the offers not hidden, Advanced (Custom) options should be opted for. You should have the option of unchecking anything that has been added.
