Babylon Toolbar

Do not be deceived by the Babylon Toolbar thinking that this tool will be of any use to you, because this browser hijacker can be implemented for malignant operations, and if you are not careful, this extension can disrupt your entire networking experience. The application may be downloaded together with bundled software from such free software offering websites as CNET, but you may also be tricked into installing it via the official source babylon.com. This website looks completely legitimate and offers to acquire the free translation software, including 75 languages and over 2 thousand dictionaries. All of this sounds very attractive; however, if you install or later on fail to remove Babylon Toolbar, you could become the victim of cunning adware.

Once the infectious toolbar gets installed into a browser, Babylon Toolbar components will be dropped to the computer’s disks in a manner that could block you from having it removed, which is one of the signs that this application has some malignant purposes. Since the application can be categorized as a browser hijacker, it is highly likely that your search results will be modified or filtered. Additionally, the program could also put its affiliate websites to the top of the search results, making sure that you click on them, and that way bring revenue to the toolbar’s creators. This is not all, and it is highly likely that the malicious browser hijacker will also implement tools (e.g. BHO) to spy on your virtual activities and identify what advertisements would catch your attention. This could be used by schemers to produce attractive ads and lure you into clicking on them, which could lead to malware downloads and fictitious offers to purchase software.

If you are thinking about downloading the free version of the Babylon Toolbar, you should reconsider this idea, especially since you can find reliable and legitimate translation systems online. Regardless, if the extension has already been installed, you should have it deleted at once. If you are not sure how to remove Babylon Toolbar, you can download automatic removal tools that are up-to-date and will be able to detect the extension as a malignant add-on. It is also possible to delete the program manually, and those running Mozilla Firefox should firstly remove the application’s component ffxtlbr@babylon.com within the “extensions” folder, under your browser folder in the Local Disk. Google Chrome users will need to locate the extensions manager within the browser and delete Babylon Toolbar add-on there. Please follow the removal instructions below.

    Hello Babylon support,

    If You've read the description you'd written a different comment. We give removal instructions ourselves, and there is no mention that it is a virus. It is just an annoying application which hides its real intention under a useful feature. We are against these kind of hidden features and inform our readers.
