Umm, no offense meant, but ... WHY didn't you back it up?

Always back up your installed software.

I blame you more than the company for not having those things backed up ASAP as you get them!

BUSS!

Somehow you downloaded it. Probably ddn't watch closely enough to keep from gettiing it by unticking the box that offered it.

Many people get fooled this way; welcome to the internet!

READ the screens and know the policies at any site you visit! That piece of junk Chrome is the latest push; it's offered all the time on downloads; ya gotta keep your eyes OPEN and READ the screens, I'm afraid.

Babylon is an insidious program promoted and supported by Mozilla Firefox.It hacks in to your system and is impossible to remove.

I used Firefox for four years without any problems until I had to do a reformat sure enough, when I downloaded a new version of Firefox, Babylon appeared like a fat, evil gnome that resisted all efforts to remove. Solution ? Get rid of Firefox and all references to Babylon,(Control Panel) install another browser and find suddenly you have a babylon free PC.

Moral : Avoid Firefox thus avoiding Babylon.

I've seen that with the version 18 download; you simply uncheck the box for it and it won't download.

And, it can be removed. Have you looked for an uniinstall program in the uninstall box?

And of course, Add-Remove?

Or searched for in the Regstry and startup folder? Etc.?
