I do not have it and I understand it is difficult to get rid of. Here is a comprehensive post on the subject:

There is more than one idea in the post and it may or may not work for you.

It is a search engine (as your post verifies) and that is what the post above is about. Did you try any of it? The picture alone you provided does not give any additional information about it.

First, I do not use it or have it, so I cannot show you screens.

Second, Babyon is a search engine, not a virus, so you cannot remove it with virus tools.

Go to the post above and start several posts down and you will see suggestions for removing it that have worked for some people.

Uninstall was included in my post above and did not always get rid of it.

Anuroopsundd - Is that how you removed it, and did it work?
