Well, to be honest, I think you should try to download some spyware removal software like spybot perhaps. Or uninstall this toolbar via control panel. Try this and see if it helped.

All the best, Mike

Re: how to delete babylon search which overrules Firefox

I've got it removed from my FireFox 4.

In the FF address bar type 'about:config' and click the enter button. A friendly warning appears about the warranty, which you need to agree to and click the button that says 'I'll be careful. I promise'.

Now type 'babylon' in the filter bar. All registry entries with babylon will show up.

Right click on each entry and reset the value.

This will solve your issue. Let us know if it did. Fixing Fire Fox Four (F4)!!!

There are also some files in the in mozilla firefox folder (c:\programs (x86)\mozilla firefox\) that you need to delete. 1. Make a backup of the folder (c:\programs (x86)\mozilla firefox\) 2. Search for the following terms: "babylon" and "bbyln" (ensure that search includes system and hidden files) 3. Delete all files and folders associated with this two terms 4. Restart firefox; the toolbar should now be gone

I recommend also that you run a free adware removal program such as 'spybot search and destroy' (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html)

Re: how to delete babylon search which overrules Firefox

aaahh This thing made me mad,real mad.My IE and FIREFOX was messed up,here is what needs to be done.

After removing Babylon from Control Panel,Program File and Babylon entries from Search Plugins in Program Files/Mozilla Firefox

Go to Firefox n type about:config - search for keyword.url and replace the babylon URL with google search.Search for babylon in the filter and reset every entry.

Internet Explorer : Go to Tools-Internet Options-Advanced and reset IE to default setting. Hope this works for all of you,wish you peace of mind!
