I have tried just about everything, but isearch.babylon.com is still in my IE browser version 8.0.6001. Microsoft Safety Scanner did not detect it and I have used ccleaner, malwarebytes and a couple of others to no avail I have uninstalled every program that I thought was related to babylon so there is no tray icon or program in uninstall. A search for "isearch" or "babylon" returns nothing. If I open a new tab in Internet Explorer it takes me to the Babyoln isearch "home page" so I know it is still there. I have looked for some of the suggested registry entries mentioned on other sites but do not find them Help! I am a disabled American Veteran of very meager means and cannot afford to spend money on this problem. Is there a way of getting rid of this without getting a masters degree in Computer science first? This must be a fairly common problem.

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • List Minidump Files
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

This is a simple enough task.

  • Right click the IE icon on your desktop and go to Properties.
  • In the General tab, Search menu in the middle, click Settings.
  • Click the Babylon entry and then click "Remove".

Consider switching to a more secure browser like Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/fx/

By adding a number of extensions like "Adblock Plus" which blocks ads thereby enabling pages to load faster you won't be bothered with this kind of browser hijack. You can get Adblock Plus by clicking the "Add to Firefox" button here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/?src=hp-dl-mostpopular

Download Spybot S & D, from Security Wonks Mirror, check for updates, and then run the scanner (Check for Problems)
This will detect and remove Babylon and several other toolbars without a problem
When finished Click on the ( + ) beside each of the items and select Fix -

I find this the easiest way, and it also gives me another Malware / Adware scanner to keep
As I use Internet Explorer as my main browser, I also find this my better way -

Edited for the link -
