Foxtab PDF Converter
Foxtab PDF Converter is a converter application that functions as a browser toolbar. It is considered to be a potentially unwanted application because it highly depends on third party content, and, as a result, it can expose you to dangerous websites. Granted, Foxtab PDF Converter is not a malicious infection and it does not enter your system surreptitiously, but it is not recommended to keep this browser extension on your PC if you did not install it. Therefore, if you are a security-minded user, you should remove Foxtab PDF Converter from the system and then check for other unwanted applications.
One of the reasons Foxtab PDF Converter is not a malicious infection is because you can download the application from the vendor’s website. The main installation source is at soft.foxtab.com. When you download this application onto your computer, it installs CutePDF Writer as well. This program allows users to print almost anything into a .pdf file. As such, this application creates “virtual” printers, and if you select a printer called “PDF Creator”, rather than actually printing the file, it creates a .pdf file that you can use later on. In other words, Foxtab PDF Converter functions properly, according to its description.
The problem is that Foxtab PDF Converter may also arrive bundled with freeware. You can accidentally install this application on your computer if you download freeware applications at third-party websites. When it comes bundled with potentially unwanted programs Foxtab PDF Converter may also have Delta Toolbar in the setup. When users do not know where this application came from, they may confuse it with Pdfforge product under the same name – this product gets installed in the same directory under PDFCreator. Both applications are very similar, but they are not related in any way.
Computer security applications do not detect Foxtab PDF Converter and do not remove it as a potential system threat because you can easily remove this application on your own. Also, when you uninstall Foxtab PDF Converter manually, this program leaves barely any leftovers, so it does not cause any specific security concerns. Due to the fact that it may come bundled with unwanted applications, it could end up being on your computer without you even realizing it. Hence, you can remove Foxtab PDF Converter from your system if you did not plan on having it around. However, if you installed the application willingly, there is no harm in using it.
If you are concerned about your system security, you should scan the PC with a licensed antispyware tool. Regular system scans are necessary if you want to keep your PC safe.
