How do I get rid of the uninvited search engine and toolbar, Babylon. (They should be sued). bilwilbow 11/2/11 9:16 AM
Google Chrome version (type about:version into the address bar):Operating System:Error Message:Extensions installed:
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):   I have been invaded by Babylon, a company which purports to be a reputable supplier of translation software but is in my view more of a virus than anything else.
    It has totally eclipsed my Google Chrome search page, and I can no longer access it via my desktop icon.
    All attempts to uninstall have failed, either via the normal Control Panel route or via default setting in Internet Explorer.
    I am, frankly, furious that this kind of piracy is permissable. I believe Babylon should be sued, but I would settle for a way of kicking them off my computer.
    Help, please.

Remove the Babylon stuff from the Chrome extension list:

For you search see reference 1.
If example Google / Bing / Yahoo is you default search engine.
