Babylon Toolbar not only usurped my default search and home pages without my permission, it also killed my tabs on Firefox and Google. A very bad program in my view.

This adware app has been seen being installed and included with tons of different software out there, from legitimate antivirus products to some more questionable ones. I have even see it installed with the CNET Download.com Installer, but I believe this has been swapped out with some others as of late. Either way, I find this program pretty intrusive and very CPU intensive and at times it even causes my computer to slow down. Uninstalling it is strongly recommended.

This toolbar/app is typically bundled with other ad-ware type programs. I've seen it bundled with CNET's Download.com an many occasions. Although the premise of the app is good, it is quite annoying and to be honest I never trust software that is bundled in this type of manner. Plus it runs in the background all the time and uses a bunch of system memory and CPU.
