I believe i have the Babylon Search engine virus. I work at Insight, the IT department had advised that i use this website to download first the Combofix, then the Malware Bytes. My coworker advised that i download these on another computer and then run them on my laptap to try and get rid of the virus. I have completed all of the downloads but still when i open my search engine, I come up with the Babylon Search. Has anyone else seen this virus before and if so, how do i go about getting it off of my computer?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Since you ran Combofix...


Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
