I am sure everyone would have faced this problem at least once. While we are trying to download and install software's, some unwanted toolbar will be installed automatically without our knowledge. Even it will be annoying us while opening the browser. But, people may not be aware as to how to remove such unwanted toolbar. It will be troubling us in different ways like automatically setting the default search engine toolbar in the browser or redirecting the web page, etc.,
A day before, i was trying to download some software for mp3 conversion, while installing accidentally i have accepted Babylon toolbar. It was annoying me like anything. Because, the Babylon toolbar has been set in my browser as a home page by default. I could not remove it properly. Later, i had removed it manually from windows registry and removed the plug-in from all browsers. That was a big deal. Later, I had included in my blog How to remove Re-direct Babylon Search Engine Toolbar Successfully? and shared to many people. I made video tutorials also.
Below screenshot is my Internet Explorer, those toolbar i have not installed with conscious. I have removed it through AVAST Browser cleanup tool.
