How do I remove babylon search from my computer

Posted

I had a technician to clean and remove Babylon search from my computer and it still attached itself to whatever I'm doing. I uninstalled Mozilla fox at least five times , then re-installed. However, I cannot get rid of Babylon search. I spent $100 dollars to resolved this problem and it's not working. I handle high confidential files on my computer. I am afraid to open the file due to fear of information being compromised.

Please Help!!!

After doing all steps above, you must clean the shortcut to Firefox on your desktop, as it may contain a link to the Babylon search page too ! Right click on the shortcut, choose Properties, and in the target field, keep only the begining, which should look like : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
