In Chrome just click on the tools, and go to "Options". There you will see your startup page, and you can change that from "search.Babylon.com" to "www.google.com". Then below that you will see a pulldown tab that says "Default Search" and it will be set to "babylon search" - just pull down the tab to pick another search provider. If you have other web browser such as IE and FF make sure you go to any other browsers you use and also reset your homepage to whatever you'd like, because Babylon automatically set your default homepage as "search.babylon.com" in every one of your installed browsers.

The Chrome search bar has been "taken over" by Babylon search, so every search is redirected to Babylon search. I'm trying to remove it, but it seems to have no trace in my control panel. I tried reinstalling Google Chrome, but that didn't solve the problem either.
