How do I remove Babylon Search from FF and IE?

Hello there guys and gals of seven forums, I have Firefox installed on my computer, but somehow Babylon search bar has installed itself on my FF, I would like some technical help with this.

1). I have removed it from Firefox: Tool>Add Ons

2). I have set my directory to be iGoogle.com.au

3). I have checked my network and it shows it's still there, I even deleted my cookies.

4). I have also removed it from manage search engines and from my c:/ drive.

It's also caused my Internet Explorer to crash which i hardly use, but thought that weird, it just pops up with Babylon Search for Firefox, and then causes IE to crash.

Please help with this, Will post pics if required, thanks.

Sonic X.

It should be in Programs and Features, Should be able to uninstall it from there. Atleast I have.

For firefox go to help menu select restart with add ons disabled,firefox will start in safe mode, check reset all user prefrences to firefox defaults, click Make Changes and Restart it will restart and it should be gone from firefox.
