Hello everyone,

First of all, anyone who helps me removing these viruses will now be officially my hero!
I've been having problems with the onlinefwd.com virus and the babylon search engine virus.

A few months ago my homepage suddenly changed to babylon search engine. I never used it though, so I didn't see any problems and kept on surfing. Now yesterdaymorning (about 24 hours ago now) my browsers started redirecting every website I visit to onlinefwd.com
Well, not EVERY time but I have to try about 5 times before it finally let's me on the website i want to visit.

My computer runs on vista.
I searched on the internet and I did a full scan with Spyware Doctor, it found some infections but after deleting the infections the problem is still there. Could anyone please help me? :)

Hey darkstar


i know that it sounds too easy and simple but it did help me 


·         Uninstall the Babylon in Programs and Features.

·         Check if the babylon Toolbar is still there in Tools>Manage Add-ons>Toolbars and extentions, if it still there, disable that(select and hit disable button)

·         Remove the Babylon homepage(Tools>Internet Options> general>Homepage(change it towww.google.com or use blank).

·         Check if the babylon is raising up when we open a new tab in the same window( Click on add tab in the Internet explorer)

·         if it is comming up:

·         Take a Regestry Backup and follow the steps:

·         Windows+R on desktop> Type Regedit and hit ok button> Select computers> hit Ctrl+F> Type Babylon in the search box and hit "Find Next" button.

·         That brings up the Babylon regestry control just Delete it(Hit Del and Enter),Search again(Just hit F3) and delete all the babylon controls.

·         Repeat the above step untill search says: "Finished Searching through the Regestry" when you hit F3.

·         Click ok button.

·         Restart the computer(Optional)


let me know how it worked !
