how to disable the "http://www.search.babylon.com"

Every time I ask for Google search, firefox "http://www.search.babylon.com...." appears and the results are not good. I had unistalled the babylon extension and the babylon.exe, but the issue is the same. What must I do with Firefox?

You can change the starting page through settings. Just restore default.

Babylon searchbar can be disabled by clicking the icon (gives you the drop menu), selecting Manage Search Engines and remove it through there.

You might also want to delete Babylon-folder from your C:/Program Files.

Hope someone finds this at least a bit helpful, I had the Babylon prob too.

Você deve desinstalar o mozilla. Vá em iniciar - definir acesso - alterar/remover mozzilla - avançar - (aqui é que está o segredo, marque na caixinha excluir meus dados pessoais e personalizações do firefox) - desinstalar - concluir. Pronto, depois é só instalar o mozilla novamente! Pritepes

I only could change it by going to "about:config" page (type it on the address bar) and changing there like suggested here:

I searched for "babylon" and changed the links and titles to google

Thanks Curaloucura This was helpful I previously used uninstall and removed the toolbar by clicking on it's icon, then searched in program files for all references to Babylon and deleted them.

Still I kept getting babylon search in the main address bar and in new tabs.

Thanks to you I have been successful in removal of the problem using this method:

The easy way: go to computer C: drive do a search on Babylon delete what comes up. Then do a registry scan. People tend to forget search functionSmiley Happy

Search.babylon.com redirect virus usually takes control of your browser's default search engine, prevents you from changing your browser's default search engine, and you didn't get what you wanted originally. In order to remove it, you can follow the guide at this link
