    Hi again all,

    I opened IE today only to find that my homepage had been changed and that there is now a babylon toolbar.

    What is irking me is that I do not remember downloading this. I've found a tool that can supposedly remove it but before I try I want to know how the hell it got there in the first place! Is there anyway of finding out? I assume it was bundled with something but what? Will a hijack this file help?

    Thank you!

    oh never mind, turns out the boyfriend installed some video software, this must have come bundled. He will be trying to remove it. I'm not used to him installing anything on this computer so didn't even think of him...
