Re: Babylon Search, need to remove

Jump to solution

Gotcha!

At least I think so. I don't count myself as expert but hell, I've found a key . . .

A.In Mozilla (my only infected browser) go to the address bar

B.type "about:config"

C click on "I will be careful - I promise"

D for every string that contains Babylon, double click it and either modify it by replacing 'Babylon' with 'Google' or else click reset.

So far this has actually worked

Since there are some people like me who have done all the registry and trying various automated processes that didn't work I'm delighted to share. Happy browsing, and hope it works for you in getting rid of the pesky remnants.

Ciao

To uninstall the Babylon  from Computer

4: Follow the steps of the uninstaller application:

To uninstall the Babylon  from Firefox

1: On the Menu Bar, go to "Tools" -> "Addons":

2: Select the Babylon  you wish to uninstall from the Extensions list - then click "Uninstall":

3: When prompted to do so, restart Firefox:

After this if you are still see the Babylon

Press on Windows Key and R key together on the keyboard

Now you will get a Run Window. Inside the Run window Type REGEDIT and press on Ok.

Now you can see a Registry. (Be Care Full While using registry)

Do note that editing the registry incorrectly may cause your computer to become unusable.

Got to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Babylon  and delete Babylon

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Babylon  and delete Babylon

And restart the computer. Now it will be gone.

Don't Forgot to change your home page to www.google.com after this fix

Enjoyyyyyyyyyyy
