ATM, I'm running the SFC scan. After I will run MSE.

I would delete the Babylon that now is disabled, but I got this, what is attached, and REMOVE is greyed. How do I delete the Babylons ?

wow. looks like this thing really got your computer. a system restore would have worked but you said that you can't do that. anyway, can you remember after installing which software the babylon came in? and since, how many days are you stuck with this babylon toolbar?

Well, yesterday I did an system restore, but this was also from yesterday morning, so not much of help with this.

I cannot remember what software babylon came in with.

I have had babylon since a while. Cannot be more precise :-(

The SFC went ok without anything wrong

are you facing any other problems with your computer? after trying the main ways 1) through uninstall from add/remove 2) through system restore 3) manually removing it from the browsers - of getting rid of the babylon toolbar but failed. if yes, I would suggest you,its best you take a back up of all your personal stuff and do a clean install of your windows Clean Install Windows 7 . I know it sounds stupid, im suggesting you a clean install just cause of that toolbar. but .. sorry, i don't find any other option here, but i could call other members to look into your problem for help . let me knw what results come from MSE though.

btw open my computer and navigate to this folder c:\program files\babylontoolbar\babylontoolbar\1.5.3.17 and see if you find any button to uninstall it, if yes. uninstall it.

I had that clean install in my mind, but it's unpleasant.

I checked the folder, but it wasn't there. I already did a search with Everyting, and removed ALL babylon instances.

There is no issue running SFC, nor MSE, and I also went through this without anything changed.

So this means, that there's no way other than do the clean install

I know how much we all hate to have to do a clean install so the answer to your question is sadly , yes. but be sure to take a back up of all your important stuffs

But I see it as having a new pure system.
I run backup every day, so this is ok.

With this I want to thank you ALL for taking your time to help me with my issue here.

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2012.
