About Malware Toolbar
If you don’t pay enough attention when installing new programs in your system, it will soon be flooded with unnecessary malware applications and toolbar add-ons. Many software developers bundle their less popular products with widely used ones. This is their way of sneaking a new software into your system.
How to remove Babylon toolbar
One such annoying malware application is the Babylon browser add-on. Some of you might have installed it thinking that it is a very useful translator application. Interestingly, it is, but Babylon toolbar is also a malware application that hijacks the browser and changes many of the custom settings. So, it is better to remove Babylon toolbar and use some other translator application for your needs.
Since it is a malware application, you have to be very thorough when it comes to the un-installation process. If not, you will see it back on your browser. After you remove Babylon toolbar, you need to reset the browser settings or at least change those settings altered by the malware, and delete all the system files associated with the program.
To remove the add-on from Google Chrome browser, click on the icon marked by three parallel lines on the right upper corner. On the context menu that appears, click on the option Settings to launch the browser settings page. Here, click on the option Extensions shown on the left side navigation pane.
Removing Babylon Toolbar
All the extensions and add-ons in Google Chrome will now be displayed in a new page. Select Babylon toolbar add-on you see there and click on the trash bin icon you see right next to it. Confirm the add-on removal, if you are prompted to do so.
Also, check the installed programs list from your Control Panel. If the Babylon toolbar is shown there, you have to remove this as well. As already mentioned, you have to reset the browser to its default settings. Some of you may prefer not to do this, as you will have some useful data stored in the browser like bookmarks, browsing history, and so on. In such cases, you need to change the Homepage and Search Engine settings in your browser.
The malware application would have changed these settings to the Babylon domain. Replace it with any other preferred website and save the new settings. If you have any doubts about this, contact our tech support personnel for assistance.
