Potentially Unwanted Programs

There are many programs floating around out there that we consider Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) or also known as Known Bad Software. Do these pieces of software directly cause malware? No. Do they contribute? We think so.

The list is quite long, but take a look at it. If you have one of these on your machine, please contact the Corvallis Simply Mac.

Thank you to Brady Fitzgerald and Matt Jacobs for assisting in compiling this list.
