babylon snuck in when you downloaded something new (probably the latest firefox) It's really tough to get rid of - it's actually hiding in your browser. Simply uninstall firefox and babylon will go with it - then install google chrome.

A simple yet effective way to diable the computer to connect to Babylon all together is to modify the "Hosts" file.

You'll find the file at "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts" (no filtype suffix).

Open it with i.e. Notepad, it should look somewhat like this:


  1. Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
  2. This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
  3. This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
  4. entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
  5. be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
  6. The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
  7. space.
  8. Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
  9. lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
  10. For example:
  11. 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
  12. 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
  1. localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
  2. 127.0.0.1 localhost

Now you simply add one line like this: 127.0.0.1 search.babylon.com

Save the file and your coputer will never get in touch with babylon search again, not even if you type the address into your browser!
