Babylon is driving me bonkers!

This question is not answered

My son was playing games on our computer and downloaded something that changed my settings and added a toolbar onto firefox.  I got rid of that, however, when I open up a new tab, it automatically opens babylon search engine.  How do I change it back to open up my normal home page??

  • Always include PC model and version of Windows in your posts.

    Try a System Restore to last date available BEFORE the kidlet downloaded whatever he downloaded. Personal files won't be affected but any software (aside from that search thing) originally installed after the date used for the Restore will have to be reinstalled (eg Windows updates, antiviral updates etc).

    Strongly recommend you scan the system thoroughly for malware ASAP. And change the kidlet's account permissions so he can't install any software again, and password protect all accounts with Administrator privileges!
