On my XP Home laptop somehow Babylon is set up as search default in IE8. How do I get rid of that as I can't seem to find any reference to it in the registry. Thanks.

How about reinstalling your IE8 browser?

If anyone else gets stuck with this pesty spy, I have found that Spybot S&D will fully remove the toolbar and any other bits of the program -

I found this out by accident after trying several other methods on my XP desktop and just happened on it -
