How to Remove Babylon Search???

How-to-remove-bablon-search-from-Google-Chrome

Recently I’ve been pissed off by the Babylon Search Engine which accidently got installed in my laptop while downloading a movie from the internet. It made my life on internet such a hell that I don’t have words to explain. I’m sure a lot of you had faced, are facing or might face this problem in future. So today, I will explain how to get rid from the Babylon Search in Google Chrome.

Here are the steps you follow to remove it:

  • Click “START” button.
  • Select the “CONTROL PANEL.”
  • There go to “ADD/REMOVE” and select Babylon Search.
  • Bring up Google Chrome, click onto Chrome Options on the top in the right most corner and select “SETTINGS.”
  • In the Settings look for “SEARCH" heading and change it from Babylon Search to Google.
  • Then click “MANAGE SEARCH ENGINES” right next to where you just selected Google as above and “REMOVE BABYLON.”
  • Last again in the Chrome Settings look up for “STARTUP"heading there you’ll encounter three options.
  • Find “OPEN A SPECIFIC PAGE OR SET OF PAGES” and select “SET PAGES.”
  • Here you’ll find your computer bearing Babylon Search, select “REMOVE BABYLON” and your computer will be free from Babylon Search.

I hope you find the above mentioned procedure quite comprehensive and easy to learn. Hope, that this will do the trick for you!!!

First of all I’m not a Chrome user. I always use Firefox and and I have faced this problem.
I have installed a screen capture software ones and it’s toolbar automatically installed. Now it took half of my screen. I’m unable to remove it.

What a timely article I must say, because I am facing this problem these days. Thanks for the rescue. Now I can throw this out quite easily.

Incidentally, I also experienced the same thing.. And then I saw your article link on my WP dashboard (I use your WP MashSocial Plugin). I got a problem with this Babylon search 3 days ago when I was doing a survey (to get a free .com domain lol) and what a bother it was to me. Finally I managed to delete it after reading your little tips … Thanks Ahmad!

I had the same problem recently.. but found the solution after searching entire chrome settings as you explained here.
Nice and informative post for chrome NewB’s :D

I saw many of my friends browsers are installed with this search provider. I thought they might have installed the Babylon translation pack and never imagined it is a malware.

Thanks for this valuable post but what about registry setting area ?how can we remove Babylon Search related key from registry?Is it mandatory to removing from that area?
