    Malwarebytes just found Tarma Installer on my computer. Other programs consider this a false positive. Also,because I haven't had an infection for over a year,I forgot how to use Malwarebytes. When you "Remove Selected" does it remove to the quarantine?

    This is one of eight detections.
    C:\ProgramData\Tarma Installer (PUP.Optional.Tarma.A)

    I don't know what PUP is.

    daddymo3, assuming that you're referring to the Remove Selected button in the Scan Results screen, yes, they are removed to Quarantine.

    And from there, you can either Delete All (if Malware) or Restore All (if False Positives).
