IE 9 an Babylon Search Engine

Does anyone know how to switch the search engine for IE9? It keeps defaulting to Babylon.

Tried and it's not listed to remove. Babylon must have paid Gates a pretty penny!!

How did you get Babylon? You could be infected. Some times you have to get rid of things like this in safe mode. I use Search Everything in safe mode to remove stubborn things. You must be very careful with Search Everything. If you remove the wrong thing it's gone. Other programs you can use are Ccleaner and Revo. Once again you must be careful. If it were my computer after getting rid of the Babylon I would run scans with MSE and Super Anti Spyware to make sure things are clean. I had to remove the Ask Tool bar with Search Everything in safe mode. Also make sure it is not running in Start Up off of the Start and in msconfig/start up.

It's always been an issue. You mean a clean install of IE9?

clean install of the Operating system.
and this Babylon search engine is more of a malware than a normal toolbar. download and scan with Spybot SD The home of Spybot-S&D! not sure that it will solve your problem though
