A Trojan Horse named "Babylon.com"
My Mozilla/Firefox has been hijacked, as far as I can tell, by Babylon.com. My system is Windows XP, Pack 2. When I searched for a free program to decompress zip files, somehow I GOT ENTANGLED with Babylon. They're a language translation service but I have always used Google for that service. This program has effectively taken over my home page and inserted it's tool bars, etc, replacing Firefox, though not on the Desktop Page. I've tried to delete it using Microsoft's "Add or Remove" program but when I do, that screen freezes. There is no way to remove it so I must exit the page to cut myself free. When I looked them up on Wikipedia I was not surprised to find out that they were once considered "malware". Their aggressiveness sort of indicates they haven't changed all that much despite legal warnings. So, can anyone advise me how to get rid of Babylon.com for good?
