Babylon Toolbar is a web browser add-on that allows you to get quick translations and definitions directly from the web browser. This toolbar is owned by Babylon Ltd - a company, which develops the translation software. Babylon Toolbar and search.babylon.com search engine are the additional features of this software. Though it looks useful, there are some sad news about this program: many computer users have reported Babylon Toolbar for unwanted changes made in their browser. Besides, this program is suspected for altering homepage settings and the default search engine on Windows systems. If you are one of these people, you shouldn't leave Babylon Toolbar on your computer. 

HOW CAN I GET BABYLON TOOLBAR ON MY COMPUTER?

Babylon Toolbar can be downloaded from the official Babylon website. However, most of the time it enters Winsows systems without any permission asked. That's because it comes bundled with other software, freeware and shareware in most of the cases. Recently, it has been noticed to spread in a bundle with CNET's software wrapper. We must add that toolbar doesn't come bundled with malware or at least we haven't seen any yet. 

Babylon Toolbar shouldn't be trusted because it alters users' search sessions for monetization purposes. That's why it is called 'redirect virus'. Additionally, it sometimes comes without user's permission asked and initiates serious problems when trying to uninstall it. So..

HOW TO REMOVE search.babylon.com AND UNINSTALL BABYLON TOOLBAR?

Babylon Search Toolbar works in all major web browsers. Before installing the toolbar, users have to agree to end user software agreement and accept all the changes that will be made during the installation. That's how it gets ability to change the default search engine provider on the PC. However, you may leave this setting unchanged. The core components of Babylon Toolbar can be uninstalled via 'Add/Remove Programs' or 'Programs and features'. For that, follow these steps:

Click 'Start' ->'Control Panel' or 'Uninstall a Program' -> Double-click 'Add/Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features'. Find all Babylon Toolbar and related programs, and click 'Uninstal' or 'Remove'.

However, you should note that some components of this software may not be removed from the system completely. In such case, you should remove add-ons, associated to Babylon Toolbar, manually. This can be done via web browser settings and properties features. In Internet Explorer it's the add-on manager feature. In Mozilla Firefox it's the add-on manager as well, but the toolbar components will be listed under the web browser extensions tab. The same can be applied to Google Chrome and Opera web browsers. Here is a step-by-step guide for that:

Internet Explorer

Click "Tools" -> select "Manage Add-ons" and search for the entries that could be related to Babylon Toolbar (Babylon Toolbar, Babylon toolbar helper, Babylon IE plugin, babylonToolbar.com). Disable them.

Mozilla Firefox: 

Click "Tools" -> select "Manage Add-ons" and disable Babylon Toolbar related entries (Babylon Toolbar, Babylon toolbar helper, Babylon IE plugin, babylonToolbar.com).

Google Chrome:

Click on a wrench icon -> select "Tools" and click on "Extensions".  Locate "Babylon Translator", select it and click on a trash can icon.

Don't forget to remove files manually from the extensions and add-ons folder in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox folders (Programs Files and Program Data)!

A lot of computer users note that the add-on cannot be uninstalled as the uninstall button is grayed out and cannot be uninstalled from within the web browser.It's also a good idea to scan your computer with anti-malware software to make sure that Babylon Toolbar is completely gone and that there are no other potentially unwanted components left on your computer. For that, we recommend using SpyHunterSTOPzilla or Malwarebytes Anti Malware.

When you place to website filter in to router.... www.babylon.com .... this rule not work ( possible bypass for this spam website).Rule for protect must be set as exakttly : any protocol(UDP and TCP) and for all ports 1 - 65535.Only tihs is work correctly. Gud luck for safe surfing on the internet.

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.
