    What is Pua:system32\packunwan and how to remove it?


    My pc performance had been going downhill recently and i just found out why, I checked my windows defender and found some file showing up as low risk, it's named Pua:system32\packunwan, please help me to remove it as I try to remove it from defender but nothing happens, I already deleted my defender history but a text file called "detections" In the defender history folder Isn't getting deleted saying it's already running and needs to be closed to be deleted. Please help

    :)

    pua notification won,t go away

    Hi #seahawk#

    Thank you for the screenshot, Defend does not list the app it considers to be a PUA, the best option is to perform an offline scan with Defender, then download the free version of Malwarebytes and run a full scan with that, those scans should remove the PUA from your PC.

    PUA not deleted or quarantined by Windows Defender

    HI, I am Dave, I will help you with this.

    A PUA is not actually malware, it is an application on your PC that Defender deems to be possibly unsafe.

    Please provide a screenshot of the history list in Defender showing the PUA's it has found on your PC.
