Babylon - I need to kill it.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Like a dildo I managed to download the wanky Babylon brouser tool which turns out to effectively just be a spamming virus.

    I have followed 2 of the Mozilla guides to kill the thing and I thought I had, that was until it popped up on a new tab a few hours later when I opened a Daily Mail link to the bird with the huge arse.

    Done a browser tab reset, done the uninstall on anything from yesterday or today but the bastard thing is still lurking elsewhere.

    Is there a virus killer for it?
  2. What about a system restore to a point before installation?
  3. That was the reset I think.
  4. Nope different thing. for restore click start button, then click all programs, then click accessories, click system tools,click system restore, pick date and time to restore to , follow instructions.

    edited to add: After system restore you may have to update other applications eg: flash player/mozilla/java, if there have been updates in that time.
  5. That being a bit drastic I didn't do it.

    Went into config and reset anything to do with it on a search, then cleared all history and then closed and re opened FF.

    Seems to have worked.
  6. Glad you've solved the issue but system restore isn't drastic. It's a nice handy tool for when updates are buggy, all it does is take your system back to when it worked without issue :)
