I followed Swarnava's link (the top one) where i scrolled down and found the answer for my firefox browser from sintz's post - which really helped because whenever I tried to open a new link on ff, it opened up with Babylon Search...but my Windows is through IE, and when I went to check on my unused IE browser I noticed Babylon was listed as the default search on it! But I found a great site, Microsoft Answers with the title "How do I remove bing as a search engine" - follow Debleena S, who gives detailed info on how to rid your pc of all of this evil babylon stuff http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie8-windows_xp/how-do-i-remove-bing-as-a-search-engine/2247c2f9-d1b5-4c49-ba4f-c56665530ccc
