I have removed all mention of it from my registry. I have removed the program itself from Users/appdata. I have reset my Chrome Browser default to Google. And still Babylon keeps reappearing as my search engine.
I do not have any idea how this program got on my system.
I am running Windows 7 with Chrome. Babylon does not appear when I run IE.
Info on the net suggests this is a virus that will send my search data back to some source.
Any suggestions on how to rid my computer of this?
See this thread for suggestions, especially towards the end of the thread.

You cannot be a reputable company if you secretly install software in people's computers without their authorization. Especially if that software disrupts normal operation. Your unauthorized software installation hijacked Chrome browser on my computer and it took three hours for me to finally get rid of it, and I'm not even sure I've completely gotten rid of your Babylon virus. It's annoying and it makes people never ever want to use any legitimate product you may have. I do not even want to visit your website for fear of getting infected. You people must stop this.
It isn't secret. At some stage the option to uncheck Babylon came up and you must have missed it. It's not all Babylon's fault either but half to blame are the other software makers who optionally bundle 3rd party software to save money.

Dueto high request and too many unfamiliar posts online regarding the removal ofBabylon we have opened a special website that demonstrates the easy steps toremove Babylon
ihope you will find it useful
If you're receiving a high volume of requests to remove your software, that should send a message. No one likes to have their browser hijacked. You're better off stopping this practice rather than teach upset people how to remove it.
We prefer that people will know how to remove Babylon from Babylon and not from unfamiliar sources which can only make more damage to you and specially to Babylon
As this thread has been answered I am locking it.
