Hello LadyG,
In order to help you, I need to know what browser(s) you are currently using and which ones are effected. Also could you please remove the link to that pornographic website at the bottom of your last post? This is a pornographic free forum that does not allow such links (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forum-rules/.)

Regards,
Eric Bennett

Ladyg,
I will install this software in a virtual machine so I can create a removal guide for you.

Also I forgot to mention that the edited post with the website is still a valid link to another pornographic page. I would just put "www.example.com" in the post instead.

Hello, Babylon is a search bar and came bundled with other software and can be the source of various issues and problems to include Adware. They usually can be removed via Add/Remove. They usually can be removed via Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7, so always check there first. Select and remove anything with the name Babylon.



IN Firefox or Google Chrome, please refer to:

This is in reference to the post I did on my logs and one still has a bad link. I want to correct it like Eric suggested. It was corrected to "xxx" by a moderator but is still offensive.

All will be glad to know I got rid of the Babylon Hijacker with the removal guide provided by Eric. Thanks a lot Eric. I refreshed Firefox and with went back to it's original install. I had to redo ad-ons but it was worth it.

Thanks Again.
Gwen
