    whoa!!!!!!!!!!

    Shot my mouth off too early.

    Its still there in the firefox tabs. Its not in that FF 'add-on' section. I've uninstalled it with Revo uninstaller & nuked it with JV16.

    Pesky rascal's still there.

    AdwCleaner detected and removed toolbars and crapware leftovers where full and updated scans with eScan, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro and Spybot Portable failed to detect (folders, files and registry entries related to babylon, conduit, ask, and other stuff i don't known). In adiction is pretty fast (only took a few seconds) and offers a detailed report in a text file, after the reboot. Straight to my malware removal toolkit :) :thumb:

    For the record, I see that two scanners at VirusTotal are giving a warning on AdwCleaner:
    TrendMicro-HouseCall - TROJ_GEN.F47V0814
    Jiangmin - Worm/Sohanad.aim
    For now I assume that those are false positives.

    EVEN i am curious about the babylon search,a friend of mine had the same problem with babylon toolbar and search and tabs in firefox,said could not remember what he installed that did it.

    seems to me babylon acts like a browser hijacker though.

    AFAIK many AV's do detect and block the Babylon software as PUA/PUP, if that setting is checked in the AV.

    Be a good company and instead of all that complicate procedure that the average Joe don't know how to perform and will never find (most people don't even have a clue why their home page and settings got changed in the first place!) simply create a uninstaller able to remove all your CRAP!
