I am not sure what I have done in the last 3 days browsing, but since two days ago I was attacked by babylon search application (isearch.babylon.com). Mozilla first page could not appear when I first open the browser, instead it was occupied by this babylon. Can someone share with me how to remove this spam? Thank you.
Cheers, Bambang Winarto

If you go to Tools -> Options (Or the big orange Firefox button -> Options), what is your homepage set to?

In Win 7 search:
C:\\Users\YourComputerName\AppData\Local\Temp\is-QKUKQ.tmp

Delete this folder for good -----> is-QKUKQ.tmp

In this folder you find these rats :

WebMediaFinder.exe
MF.exe
BabylonTB.exe
default.xml
_isetup (consists : _iscrypt.dll, _setup64.tmp, _shfoldr.dll)

Delete this and delete other files and folder created at the time that Media Finder was installed maliciously fast and couldn't be interrupted.
Also delete from the registry using cmd regedit but you find it by googling.
