Babylon is one of the best translation software programs available in the software universe. The specialty here is that it offers one-click translation and dictionary access. The translation software company, Babylon Ltd., actually offers this program as a free download. This program integrates itself in the internet search context of your browser.
The problem is not its translation prowess or quality; it is the unsolicited way this software is installed on your system most of the time. This happens without your permission. Moreover, Babylon also takes over the default search page, and that too without your permission. Usually, the uninstall option available should remove this menace from your system. However, there have been many complaints from users saying that it incorporates malware or spyware, and these malicious and malevolent programs make themselves very difficult to uninstall. Here are some Babylon toolbar removal techniques.
Usual Babylon toolbar removal
In case you are a Windows user, you need to go to the Start menu. It is located in the lower-left hand corner of your desktop screen. Then, go to Control Panel and after that Add/Remove Programs, or Remove a program. You need to know that these steps may change depending on the Windows versions. This should take most of the program off your computer. However, some users still complain that the program tends to remain even after a basic uninstall.
Another annoyance is the Babylon toolbar, which integrates itself with toolbars in browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet explorer and Google Chrome. The users say that, even after they have uninstalled the Babylon program, this annoying toolbar persists, and slows the operation of the computer down.
Removing Toolbar from Firefox
You can perform the basic uninstall that is described above. In case the toolbar is now present in your Firefox browser, you can click on Tools (in Firefox) and then click on Add-Ons. After that you can click on Uninstall button under Babylon, and you just need to follow the prompts and you would be successfully removing this toolbar completely.
Removing Toolbar from Internet Explorer
Sometimes, even when you uninstall Babylon from your program list and even completely re-install Internet Explorer, the irritating toolbar can stay fixed in your Internet Explorer browser. For this purpose, you need to click on Tools and then Manage add-ons. You will now see a list of add-ons you are having for IE, and Babylon would be among them. After that, you need to click on the Babylon program and the click Disable or Uninstall.
These are the steps you should take in order to get rid of the Babylon toolbar from your system.Google+
