Babylon search bar/internet explorer problem

How do you get rid of it...it appears to be fairly malicious malware/adware?  I have tried many approaches but have not been successful because it appears to have planted a lot of cookies on my PC.  Your assistance is appreciated.
thanks,

I had to go into Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options and then the Advanced Tab.  You have to click on Reset Internet Explorer settings.  You then have to close Internet Explorer and restart Internet Explorer and Babylon is gone!
