Please see How to remove the Babylon toolbar, home page and search engine

Question owner

Did you read what I have posted? I told I have done EVERYTHING (which includes "see How to remove the Babylon toolbar, home page and search engine") but it comes back. I dont know what Firefox are gainning doing that Babylon partnership. Maybe running for Lost of Popularity. By the way. I have already changed my browser... It will be VERY difficult to come back again. Im pleased now and call everybody to do the same.

Hi Marcus, believe me, it's not Mozilla's idea for you to have Babylon software on your computer.

When clearing out the software, other users have reported on these forums that you need to be on the lookout for programs with innocuous names such as:

Browser Manager
Bprotector
Object Installer
(Example: I found a fix for Babylon!)

Only after you get all the remnants of Babylon software off the system can you effectively prevent them from changing your Firefox configuration again.

What is your new browser that you enjoy more than Firefox, and why?

The Firefox browser from Mozilla most certainly does not come with anything Babylon in any version of Firefox for any OS.

Babylon claims it is easy to remove their crap when it is not.
