Can't uninstall Babylon- doesn't even show up in my programs list.... Help!

[ Edited ]

I keep getting pop-up's that state  "Object error", very annoying. I believe the source of this problem is the Babylon software on my PC. I have already uninstalled Google Chrome, which I read could be the source of the problem, this did not solve the problem.

Interestingly, when I seach for this toolbar in my programs file, I canot loacte it it, either manually or using a search.....How can I uninstall Babylon, my OS is windows 7

Any help or feedback is greatly appreciated !Smiley Happy

Which browser/ version are using?

 

Do you have the Babylon program installed, or is it the Babylon toolbar?

 

Also:

 

** Note: For an alternate removal method – Go to "run" or "select programs and files" in the Start Menu and copy and paste the following: C:\Program Files\Babylon\Babylon-Pro\Utils\uninstbb.exe

I tried to copy and paste the link into "run", not found in results. I think iit must be the Babylon search bar.

I checked in my Tools menu and was able to find the "seach babylon" under Search providers in my add-ons,

however when I attempt to delete, that link is greyed out. Thanks so far for your help!

I found this link with directions on how to remove the babylon search.

Okay, after one of my last posts, when I saw that Babylon was listed as one of my search providers in my tools menu, I said to myself, "Oh, No you don't", then  searched for "homepage", and sure enough, babylon was set as my homepage. I changed it back to my prefered Google. Hopefully this fixes the problem. I will accept your last answer as the correct answer as this is what I did, and we'll hopefully see if this works. I was still not able to locate or disbale Baylon, what a pain!

Thanks again for your good adviceSmiley Happy Leigh

As you may have reaqd in the links I sewnt to you, babylon puts alot of things on your PC, changes your default browser, etc.  Stay away from it!

 

If the problem comes back, post back please!
