I suggest that you go into Control panel and click on add/remove programs. Check the list to see if Babylon is listed.If it is, you can uninstall it from there.

Thank you for your posts. First thing I did was go to c. panel/uninstall and ditched 2 items referring to Babylon, this did not stop it taking over Google Chrome, I looked at Google site and followed instructions for removing extensions but there were none relating to babylon. I am wary of touching anything that sounds like the registry, so decided to go to restore date before the infection started, this has solved the problem.

Memo to self:- Must be very careful when downloading drivers, go to the company making the equipment not a driver download site!

Thanks again - problem solved.
