Hello,

I have Malewarebytes on my computer & it found the following PUPs.  I am not sure what they are or if I should delete them or what I should do with them.

Because they say they are part of the Registry, I don't want to delete or do anything for fear that I will mess things up!

It does say *No malicious items detected* so I am not sure what to do with these or whether they are something to be concerned about.  

TIA
