To whom it may concern,

I downloaded a program to help me edit some DVD menu's and this Babylon Search function was downloaded with it. It created add-on's and made my computer do things that were not desirable. I uninstalled it but found it to be still lingering on my computer in the add-on sections of browsers. Ever since I downloaded the program and got the "Babylon Search" with it I have found that my computer is running really slow. It also shows up in Internet Explorer when I click to open a new tab. It comes up right away and seems to be mimicking the Google Search layout only it says Babylon in the top right of the screen... Has anyone had any experience with this? Any help would be great. I do appreciate you reading my message.

Jared

i uninstalled any trace of "babylon" in the program list but it is still lingering.

thanks

Doesn't seem to be malware at all.
