Even though most of the browser add-ons are created to upgrade the way users browse the Internet, such tools like Babylon Toolbar can also be used to promote computer malware. The users might not be aware of that at first, because Babylon Toolbar is a legitimate browser extension, distributed by an official website or Cnet's Download.com. However, Babylon Toolbar can also be used by third party software for bundle downloads.

Although the toolbar itself does not install any viruses and malware, its removal happens to be almost impossible, especially if the user is not well-versed in computers. Usually you would expect a browser add-on to have a "disable" button, or at least an Uninstall utility, but that is not the case with Babylon Toolbar - even if you delete it via Control Panel, it will still be within your browser.

Usually, if Babylon Toolbar cannot be removed from your computer, it is the first signal that it was actually installed by third party software that does not WANT to be removed. That is so, because Babylon Toolbar monitors the user's browsing habits and then generates a list of pop-up advertisements that are customized according to which websites the user frequents the most.

Either way, the fact that Babylon Toolbar can be installed on your computer by a third party means that your system is prone to vulnerability. These vulnerabilities can be exploited in order to install other malware. You have to nip the problem in the bud and remove Babylon Toolbar from your computer before it becomes the source of serious trouble.

Get yourself a computer security program that will classify Babylon Toolbar as a potentially unwanted program and erase it automatically. The computer security program will also scan your system to check whether there are any other unwanted applications on board.
