    Hi All

    How can I remove PUA:win32/speedingupmypc.

    Defender finds it but cannot remove it. I have tried a few malware programs but no success.

    Everything I have read about this one is not good so some help is needed.


    Take care and stay safe all.

    Alan

    Enable or Disable Windows Defender PUA Protection in Windows 10  


    From Shawn's note in the tutorial:

    What we are doing is a hack, and Enterprise versions have may other security measures to prevent it from installing.

    I bet DDU is on the list of PUA's, because a company does not want their users mucking around in the drivers(they probably couldn't without the Admin password anyhow).
