But before we share with you how you can do that, let us tell you more about this infection and how you could prevent similar attacks from happening.test

Where does Tables come from?

Our malware researchers say that this questionable extension does not even have an official webpage where you could find information about it or a button to click to download it directly. Clearly, this is a suspicious situation and leaves us no questions about its reliability. So you might wonder how this adware is distributed then. Well, no surprise to us but this infection can be found in free software bundles. You should know that there are two main types of bundles: The legitimate ones and the malicious ones. Legitimate bundles are spread by "real" software developers who only promote proper third-party programs to be able to support their free program developing. However, malicious software installers can also be packed with legitimate free software and potentially unwanted programs to infect unsuspecting computer users. The latter is obviously the way of cyber criminals. This is why you should stick to official websites when it comes to downloading software and updates.

One click on the wrong third-party content or a download button on a shady file-sharing website and you could easily drop a bunch of adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and more bundled together for more serious damage. You may not believe that you would visit suspicious websites, such as torrent and freeware pages, knowingly but this may happen even accidentally. It is enough for you to click on a search result hyperlink that comes from an unreliable search website or a browser hijacker. As a matter of fact, even reputable search engines (Google, Yahoo, and Bing) may present to you potentially harmful websites as search results because cyber criminals know exactly how to operate their fake file-sharing pages in order for them to show up among the first results when unsuspecting users search the web for certain keywords. This obviously means that you always need to be alert when surfing the web if your PC is not protected by an up-to-date anti-malware program. Since there is a good chance that your system could be infected with multiple threats, we advise you to delete Tables and all other threats you may be able to detect. In fact, you should use a trustworthy malware scanner to identify all the questionable programs on your PC if you take your virtual security seriously.

This risky browser extension can infect two of your major browsers: Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. For some reason, this infection seems to use the Chrome ID of an authentic browser extension ("fngmhnnpilhplaeedifhccceomclgfbg") called EditThisCookie; therefore, you need to be cautious which one you remove if both are in your list. The main goal of this adware application is clearly to provide you with third-party advertisements and expose you to promoted websites.
