Re: Keep getting sent to a "Babylon search"

i had the same problem with Google Chrome, and actually found this site from Babylon which i have found useful, at least for my case

Give it a try:
»www.babylon.com/uninstall_search/index

Re: Keep getting sent to a "Babylon search"

When they already coded it to not show up in Add or Remove Programs, or Programs and Features (depending on your version of Windows) I would not trust a removal tool from the foistware provider. Remember, it installed without your knowledge in the first place. What will the uninstaller really do?

Hey Joker

You might be right in most cases, but I am usually looking at the source where I got the program from,, I am not so familiar with Babylon but was a bit surprised to see they do have a special removal page, and I must admit it did work for me...

I took a look at their removal page, and it seems it's not an uninstaller, just a manual method for removal.

You may want to take a look at this topic:
»Re: SafeSearch hijack
Particularly for the use of AdwCleaner by Xplode to remove Babylon Toolbar. I would give it a try and see now much was left that their manual method left behind.

It's a nice tool mentioned here:
»download.cnet.com/8301-2007_4-57···rograms/
And also in this topic here:
»Security Toolkit: Best 4 lesser known Malware programs

If you try the tool, please report back on what leftovers AdwCleaner found and removed.
