can't uninstall babylon?

  luvloz 20:12 28 Mar 2009

We have 3 users on our computer & 1 has downloaded Babylon, (translater) but it has appeared on all the uses desktops & now we can't remove it through "Add/Remove" in control panel! We also keep getting COMODO popups saying Babylon is trying to modify regestry keys? I don't like the sound of it & I don't know how to clear it off my computer! Please help!!!!

Try Revo Uninstaller click here If asked if you want to reboot the PC after uninstalling, choose No and let Revo clean the registry as well.

Could be a rootkit infection. If you run Avast AV try a scheduled scan, means it will scan for trojans before Windows loads. If not try a malware specialist forum such as

Not a rootkit or a virus. The software is running in the background once it's installed, you have to stop the related processes before doing an uninstall. Sign of a poorly written uninstaller which doesn't do it itself.

c:\Program Files\Babylon\Babylon-Pro\Babylon.exe is the process name - open Taskmanager (hit Ctrl + Shift + Delete), right click Babylon.exe and select End Process. Then go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall it.

Good advice if genuine Babylon.
