You probably got a virus....
Can you browse to other websites? If you can then is just your home page babylon.com? You can easily change your home page (the webpage that opens up when you open your browser). To change your default home page first go to the website you want as your home page then, click on "tools" menu option above, then click on Internet options, click on the button "use current". I would scan your system to make sure your system is not infected with malware or a virus. Malwarebytes is a good tool for removing malware.

Check your HOSTS File. It may be corrupted. Look in c:\windows\system\drivers\etc
You may likely have a virus .

Hi,

Babylon has options during the isntallation. IF you don't turn off them the normal ibhaviour of installer is:
- Replace your home page to babylon search
- Change your default search provider to Bbylon Search
- Add a Babylon Toolbar to your Explorer.

So if you want to get rid of it.
- Restore your home back to the original.
- Remove the toolbar
- Change the default search engine to your original value.


Cheers,
K.
