Removing toolbars? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had once a virus called Babylon Search and it installed a toolbar on Internet Explorer 8.  I ran an antivirus software to delete the virus.  I also had a technician from Norton, clean my computer. Now I noticed that when I right click the toolbar space in IE8 I find that I still have a Babylon-English Toolbar.  It is not grayed out so it appear it can be seleted.  This program too over my computer and I was not able to make any changes nor run any antivirus software adequately. 

    Where in my system to I find the file location where this toolbar is located so I can delete it?

  • Hi,


    This toolbar may be listed in the Internet Explorer Add-ons; you could try to delete the ActiveX control to check the result:

    Refer to the part "Internet Explorer add-ons: frequently asked questions" -> "Can I delete Add-ons or ActiveX controls?"


    Hope it helps.
