Hi @tsoilihoi

PUP means Potentially Unwanted Program. It is not consider to be virus but suggestion you as unwanted software. But let us not take the risk.

Try to uninstall the program and scan back with Malwarebytes > remove the alerted entries > reinstall back wise registry checker> scan back.

If still you get alert then it is falls alert. You can add the register entry to exclusions list.

Regards,

I think you should send your question to wise cleaner admin and malware bytes admin because it is a very sensitive issue, it could harm your computer, for wisecleaner go here http://www.wisecleaner.com/feedback.html

For malwarebytes go here https://support.malwarebytes.com/customer/portal/emails/new?b_id=6400

Please don't delete it.
That is a false positive.
WiseCleaner products never contain any virus or malware.
We will contact Malwarebytes and fix it soon.

Here's the problem. Malwarebytes is taking aggressive action against registry programs on their believe that they don't work.
And on the idea that they may someday affect the registry. It concerned me greatly to have it quarantined. After looking into it,
my attitude is that it is libelous and irresponsible behavior and wise might want to take it up with a lawyer. Funny they didn't put cc cleaner on their list... because cc would probably sue the pants of of them. What's worse, a malware program or an anti-malware program that acts like malware? Shame on them.

I have same issue, and I already post it to wisecleaner support team, they told me a solution, and it worked. Actually, I hope wisecleaner team can fix this issue perfectlly (not using exclusion), malwarebytes or other security software not remove wisecleaner.
