What are 'PUP' detections, are they threats and should they be removed?

PUP detections are Potentially Unwanted Programs.
Our lab has found that these programs can be added to a PC without knowledge or approval of the user. When Reason Core Security detects these programs during a scan, they will be categorized and recommended to remove. When Reason Core Security Real Time Protection detects them, they will not automatically be quarantined. You can choose to automatically quarantine them by going to the protection screen in the settings menu and choosing Always automatically quarantine high risk threats. If Reason Core Security detects a program that you use and wish to keep as a PUP, it can be prevented by adding this program to exclusions.
