Hi there, as the title states the Babylon Search virus business, has hijacked my firefox, ive tried all available fixes i can find
Ive tried:

* Used add remove programs to remove babylon
* Removed it from firefox add ons section
* Reset all the babylon entries in about config ( but upon browser restart they are all active again)
* I have removed all folder from my computer that i can find, program files, appdata etc
* I have deleted all reg entries i can find from lists provided on other sites, and usinf the find function to find any extras.
* I have run, malware bytes (turned up nothing) Hitman (turned up nothing) Spyware SD (found and deleted some entries but problem still persists)

I have now run a hijack this scan, but im unsure how to anaylze it correclty? hoping somene lovely will help me out with something else to try, i dont want to reformat my entire pc! =(

Im not sure wether to post my hijack this log straight up, or wait to be instructed. So ill just wait.

Thanks for any replies

Good evening. :)

As HijackThis has not been seriously updated by Trend Micro in some time, it is now no longer considered to be an effective tool for malware removal. You will need to go here, follow steps six, seven and eight as best you can, skipping those that you cannot run for any reason, and then post accordingly into this thread.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Helpers are limited in the number of logs they can take by the time they have available and having threads sit idle means that somebody else who could be being helped has to wait.
Given that there has been no response for five days, and I have no way of knowing when there will be one, this thread is now closed.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
