The PUM (Potentially Unwanted Modification) detections are not false positives or actual infections, but rather settings which you may have made and in some cases, malware also makes. As part of Malwarebytes protection, we scan those sections of the registry for changes which differ from default settings.


If you made the modification, you can add them to ignore after your next scan or allow them to be set to Microsoft default settings by our software.
