The scan of my PC showed 1,228 malware items – all of them PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) files.  I found references online to PUP files calling them conduits to other viruses – Trojans, etc.  I then scanned my laptop.  That also had 8 PUP files on it.  Every one of those PUP files was in the Google Chrome directory. Okay, I’m convinced.  No more Chrome for me.  I’ve removed it from both my Windows computers.  I may have to use it at some future date – to test web pages for a school class, but I’m done with it for now. Thanks to my Hubby for the extra clean-up on my PCs – he got rid of stuff that I couldn’t. Stupid malware.
