    Malware removal

    Just started getting the message from MalwareBytes that it blocked infection, so I went to quarantine and found it had quarantined the PUPUpdate malware so I hit delete it. which it did. But when I get on line with Firefox I get the same warning that it has defended successfully against the infection. But there is nothing in the quarantine section. I am running Windows 7 32/64 bit

    If Firefox blocks a connection because of malware, you won't normally get anything to quarantine, the connection to the offending software is dropped on detection. Update MBAM and run a quick scan, post back with the results, attach your older MBAM logs as well, if you want.
