I'm using Wise Registry Cleaner free 9 and this is what I got on my most recent Malwarebytes scan. Should I remove and not use this program?

Hi @ylidor

Kindly find the below discussion:-

http://forum.wisecleaner.com/index.php?/topic/12384-solution-for-pupoptionalwiserc/?p=27062

It is a false alarm. Kindly add the program in the list of Malware Exclusions:-

Currently, Wise team is working with malwarebyte team regarding the same problem.

Regards,

Malwarebytes thinks Registry Cleaners are useless, for further information check the links :

https://blog.malwarebytes.com/malwarebytes-news/2016/10/malwarebytes-gets-tougher-on-pups/

If you still want to use this it would have to be added to the ignore list in your malwarebytes client.

Well if your pc is somewhat decent, registry cleaners might give you little to no improvement speed-wise, but PUP (potentially unwanted program) doesnt mean virus, so if i were you, i would just move along since there is nothing dangerous here :)
