Sorry, I didn't mentioned, that Babylon is not visible in add/remove.
The Babylon string here persist in InternetExplorer->Tools->InternetOptions, and
will not get removed.

Se the string here:

hi again, thanks for the screenshot. i see there's no babylon installed there.
i'm posting a step by step screen shot sequence for you. this is for internet explorer if you want,
i will post the same for mozilla too
  • go to tools>internet options>click on use blank>apply>ok
  • go to tools>internet options again and on search click>settings>first apply default to either google or bing (whichever you have)
  • then select babylon & just remove it
hope this helps.
