Babylon Toolbar is a Ghost

Recommended Posts

I reset homepage, but Babylon is still dominating my two installed browsers, Firefox and Chrome. I tried hijackthis, and I can see the babylon reference, but before it loads, for one it says the hosts file is in use, but I checked it, it's not different than I expected, and secondly when I try to delete the bablyon reference, it's not listed on the hijackthis page to delete, it's only on the log. I did delete what I saw that was related. I have no idea where to find it in the registry, and I checked control panel and not only is unlocker gone, nothing recently is installed at all, according to multiple uninstallers I tried.

This is a wonderful community and I hope that I can share something of use, while I ask for guidance.

I'll make a list of my scenario:

  • Internet Explorer is not Installed on my ASUS k52ju/k52jt series - i7 q740 1.73ghz 64 bit [i uninstalled it manually a while back]
  • Installed Unlocker to unlock a folder that's been locked since I was doing video editing on the thing a few months ago
  • Set unlocker not to install Babylon Toolbar, but it seemed to do just that.
  • Uninstalled Unlocker, and the Toolbar went away...
  • Reset homepage, but Babylon is still automatically loading going to this affiliate url: search.babylon.com/?affID=14335&tt=4812_4&babsrc=NT_ss&mntrId=a05f0ee20000000000004e5d60c3f7c1 anytime I open a new page, or tab, on Chrome, or Firefox.
  • Read around on the forums and I tried CCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti Malware, already had comodo antivirus installed[setup for manual overrides], adWcleaner, and I used Hijackthis to try to fix the problem myself as well.

Is there anything from the two logs below that might immediately inform someone with more experience with Win 7, and Babylon how to solve this? I need to work with 3rd party websites, and I don't want to comprimise their security, but I need the money asap so I'm just hoping to solve this smoothly. Thanks so much for any time spent looking into this.

Hi and Welcome!! :) My name is Jeff. I would be more than happy to take a look at your malware results logs and help you with solving any malware problems you might have. Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and know that I am working hard to get you a clean and functional system back in your hands. I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Please do not delete anything unless instructed to.

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix or HijackThis fixes without supervision.

Doing so could make your system inoperable and could require a full reinstall of your OS losing all your programs and data.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

These tools MUST be run from the executable (.exe) every time you run them

with Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

Stay with this topic until I give you the all clean post.
