    about time they started doing this and PUP websites what they need to do is Implement Bad website as Phishtank and other lists ignore scam websites (cold callers who pretend to be from "windows Support" there are still 2-3 websites i have on my list that are Not been blocked by any browser the sites are 5 years old)

    they should sort out there advertisers first, put itunes in and you see the PUP links (say itunes.randombdownload.com) installs 3-5 pieces of unwanted software and then installs itunes

    antivirus softwares should have been aggressive targeting PUP for long time now, coming to a computers that has 5-20 unwanted softwares installed and the antivirus just ignoring it

    only AVG and Avast do it, but ONLY do once you have Enabled it, its Disabled by default

    AVG its under the real time scanner bit

    avast you need to enabled in under active protection > sensitivity for web, mail and scanner

    for normal users PUP should be enabled as most people cant make a informed decision on what is bad or good (for Adv users most prob want it off)

    Does that mean it will start to block adobe.com? Whenever you install Adobe Reader it tries to also install Google Chrome too unless you specifically un-tick the boxes.
