What is Babylon Toolbar?

Babylon Toolbar is a web browser add-on that is promoted as a very useful tool that is capable of improving people's browsing experience. According to its description, this program allows you to get quick translations and definitions directly from the web browser without a need to search the Internet from them. However, this program is not as peaceful as it may look from the first sight. Beware that it belongs to Babylon Ltd - a company, which also owns such search engines as isearch.babylon.com. So, after installing this toolbar on your computer, you may find out that your start page or the default search engine has been replaced by unknown software. We think that you should avoid Babylon Toolbar and search.babylon.com because no matter how useful they look, they can easily trick you into visiting unknown websites. This is done by altering search results and showing misleading pop-up ads during people's browsing. If you are one of these people whose web browser has been hijacked by Babylon virus, you should scan your computer with SpyHunter or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus

HOW CAN BABYLON TOOLBAR hijack MY COMPUTER?

Babylon Toolbar can be downloaded from the official Babylon website. However, most of the time it enters systems without any permission asked. That's because it comes bundled with other software. In most of the cases, its distribution relies on freeware and shareware that seeks to earn the money from such activities. Recently, it has been noticed that Babylon Toolbar hijacker is actively spreading around in a bundle with download managers, PDF creators and similar freeware. That's why you should start monitoring installation of such software. Before installing the freeware, users have to check what is said in its end user's license agreement and privacy policy. Please, do NOT install suspicious programs! In addition, they should select Custom or Advanced installation option and opt out of the changes that are offered during the installation because that's how Babylon hijacker gets ability to change the default search engine or the start page on the PC. 

To sum up, Babylon Toolbar is one of these programs that shouldn't be trusted because they can alter the default search engine, the start page and similar system settings. In addition, they may show people altered search results for monetization and other purposes. That's why Babylon toolbar redirects people to various websites..

insightful.. reminds me of a bunch of other stroeis in the word, like God is taking you to a land of to much, a land flowing with milk and honey. But dont forget they spent 40 years in the wilderness first. Sounds like a lesson in self sacrifice, a little of that, share in his (Christs) sufferings so that we may also share in his glory. I dont take that as we have to be literally crucified, but you do get the idea that we have some real hard work ahead, some sweat and blood some well sacrfice.

To Babylon Support Team, You obviously dont know who or what you are working for as the advice on your own site does not work for Chrome and Babylon is most definately an invasive and very irritating VIRUS. So get another job!

and to date I have not yet found an effective way of eradicating this pest that I never invited into my life!

Not a virus, eh? Then kindly explain to me how every single computer on my home network became infected with it? One of those computers was TURNED OFF and when it was turned o after 3 days up popped the installation window with NO way to prevent installation! Once I figure out how this crap got in I will report your company.

Babylon also places entries in your firefox profile that you may need to go in and manually remove. One of these is to send you to babylon.com when you open a new tab.

To determine if you have some or any of these mods do the following:

- Open Firefox
- Type in about:config in the address bar
- Click the "i know what Im doing" - "Ill be careful, I promise" button that pops up
- Enter bab in the search filter box
- For any entries with babylon, you can right click and reset the value or delete the entry
