How to avoid potentially unwanted programs
PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller is Malwarebytes' generic detection name for bundle installers, aka bundlers.
Bundlers are typically installed by the users themselves, who are often unaware of the extra software that will be offered or even installed without giving the user a choice. Users typically agree to install the bundler because they want the main program the bundler has to offer.
Malwarebytes can detect and remove PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller without further user interaction. If one of these bundlers has been detected on a system it is advisable to run a full system scan.
