Hi prikryl, welcome to IObit Forum! :-D


Please have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_(software) in Wikipedia.

Installer window from Download.com during the controversy with Nmap. Clicking the green button will install the Babylon Toolbar which will hijack the user's web browser.



On 7 August 2010, Microsoft antivirus products identified the software application as adware (identified as "Adware: Win32/Babylon") due to potentially intrusive behavior. Sixteen days later, on 23 August 2010, Microsoft announced that Babylon Ltd. had modified the program and that it was no longer categorized as adware. In 2011, the Cnet site Download.com started bundling the Babylon Toolbar with open-source packages such as Nmap. Gordon Lyon, the developer of Nmap, criticized the decision. The vice-president of Download.com, Sean Murphy, released an apology: The bundling of this software was a mistake on our part and we apologize to the user and developer communities for the unrest it caused.


In 2012 the Babylon search toolbar was identified as a browser hijacker that, while very easy to install inadvertently, is unnecessarily difficult to remove afterwards.The toolbar is listed as an unwanted application by anti-spyware software such as SpyHunter, Stopzilla, and Spybot – Search & Destroy. Many users, trying to uninstall Babylon, have searched for help on different support forums.The toolbar tends to install itself onto computers as an add-on with other software, and it changes users' home page to the Babylon search engine, adds the search engine to the computer and sets itself as the default.



Please upload the files to VirusTotal and give the report links in your next post.


I don't think IObit needs to investigate your files as they can get them easily rom the web.
