What is browser hijacker?

Browser hijacker is a malicious program, usually a web browser plug-in or add-ons, which modifies web browser settings in order to change default search page, home page, new tab or error page. After that, it starts unwanted redirects to undesirable Internet sites. A browser hijacker also can record all web pages the user visits and send gathered information out through a background Internet connection.

Practically all browser hijackers are created for commercial, advertising or marketing purposes. However, there are lots of malicious versions of these programs that similarly to spyware or adware threats can be installed on the system without user's consent and often hide deep inside the system for avoiding their removal.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by Babylon Toolbar:

•  Changes in homepage and/or default search engine
•  Redirects to websites that are unknown and suspicious

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

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.

This Babylon Soft Ware is the WORST of it`s kind to say the least. How can a Software require a lot of time to Unistall with a number of steps to take for goodness sake? Babylon is the most regretful adventure I have ever made on Internet Download.

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!

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.
