According to our research, Microleaves can spread the PUP silently by adding it to malicious installers that might carry different programs packaged together. Because there is a possibility that malware has invaded your operating system, we strongly advise using a malware scanner to inspect it. Hopefully, the scanner does not detect other threats that require removal, and you can focus on the PUP.
