What is Driver Tonic PUP

Driver Tonic PUP detected by your virus elimination program possibly means you have a generic potentially not wanted software (PUP) in your computer. It ought to be mentioned that PUPs aren’t particularly severe threats, as they do not aim to directly damage your device. The PUP may be hidden as a useful application so as to prevent elimination. Users commonly run into PUPs advertised as credible computer cleaners or security utilities, and commonly games. When applications attempt to install through software bundling without explicitly asking for authorization and request users to pay for useless services, they’re normally referred to as PUPs. You will constantly be pestered with notifications to purchase worthless software if you are dealing with a PUP that pretends to be a computer optimization utility or a security utility, and ads will constantly interrupt your browsing if the PUP is a browser plug-in. Because PUPs are of no use to you, it would be best if you uninstall Driver Tonic PUP.

How are PUPs distributed

PUPs commonly pretend to be handy applications, so you could have set up the potentially unwanted program yourself. It is recommended to do more thorough research in the future prior to program installation if you want to avoid PUPs.

It’s more probable, however, that the PUP installed through program bundling. Bundling programs is a pretty simple installation method. Freeware normally comes with unwanted programs attached as extra offers, unless you uncheck them, they are set to install alongside. Those offers are concealed, and most users end up installing them by accident.

If you do not pay attention to program installation, you will not be able to stop these undesirable items. To make the offers visible, pick Advanced (Custom) options. In those settings, you will also be able to unmark all the extra offers.

Is Driver Tonic PUP dangerous

For certain generic PUP threats, security software like Kaspersky, Symantec, Avast, Malwarebytes, TrendMicro and ESET will use Driver Tonic PUP as the identifications name. Most anti-virus utilities will find it, but it’s not especially dangerous. Frequently, PUPs wish to either expose you to adverts or make you buy useless applications. An increase in advertisements is usually the initial sign of the infection and that goes for most PUP kinds.

The most important thing you ought to bear in mind is that purchasing paid versions of PUPs is a bad idea, as it would be a waste of money. And keep in mind that ads made by PUPs are likely to expose you to viruses and scams, so interacting with them isn’t advised.
