What is Tables?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Tables is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one also displays advertisements.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Tables?

You may see this entry in your list of installed software:

and these browser add-ons in Chrome and Opera:

The extension in Firefox did not show up in the list but the files were there.

How did Tables get on my computer?

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software.

How do I remove Tables?

Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
  • Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Tables?
  • No, Malwarebytes removes Tables completely.
  • If you are using Chrome, you may have to remove the Extension manually under Tools > Settings > Extensions. Remove the checkmark and click on the bin behind the Tables entry.
  • If you are using Opera, you may have to remove the Extension manually under Opera > Extensions, first disable the extension and then click the x behind Tables and click OK in the prompt to confirm.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Tables hijacker. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
