Sudoku site

A few months ago I was on websudoku.com and afterwards realized Norton would not run, not update, and I couldn't access mail. I solved that by going safe mode and running Malwarebytes which found two pup files. Once deleted the computer ran perfectly. Yesterday I went back to that site and the exact same thing happened, only this time the problem files were cleared out by two disc cleanup runs. Norton is missing whatever is occurring on this site and I will not be returning to it - as it is able to totally disable Norton access.



Re: Sudoku site

 It looks like you have picked up a PUP, a Possibly Unwanted Program. While they are annoying, they do not cause damage to your system. Some people actually want the 'Features' offered by these programs. They are usually downloaded alongside a legitimate download when you do not uncheck the option for the additional download.

Norton products concentrate on malware that can damage your system, that is why some PUPs are not detected.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
