unwanted pup

Hi, I am new to this site so here goes. I after contacting three chat people and after running a full scan at the McAfee technical support center and it not showing any viruses am still having issues and no end in site. I after a complete scan with my software show a potentially unwanted program. This can not be completely removed and I worry that it could lead to other trouble. it is a generic pup from windows and I want to know if it is harmful. Thank you
