Re: Removal of PUP. Optional.Babylon.A

Recommended Posts

1. Please see the attached Farbar Scan Tool files.

2. Please also see the below scan results.

3. I have several times quarantined and then deleted these suspected files; but they still keep appearing on the next Malware scan.

3. I do not have Babylon or any other malicous programs that show up in the Windows Control Panel Programs section.


Please advise of the next step to remove these.

Clean out temp files:

Download TFC from here and save it to your desktop.



Close any open programs and Internet browsers.

Double click TFC.exe to run it on XP (for Vista and Windows 7 right click and choose "Run as administrator") and once it opens click on the Start button on the lower left of the program to allow it to begin cleaning.

Please be patient as clearing out temp files may take a while.

Once it completes you may be prompted to restart your computer, please do so.

Once it's finished you may delete TFC.exe from your desktop or save it for later use for the cleaning of temporary files.


Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.exe.

Run FRST.exe and click Fix only once and wait

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) in the folder, please post it to your reply.


Update and run a Threat Scan with Malwarebytes.

Let me know how it is, MrC
