TO ALL READERS! Since we assume that dealing with viruses like MyBabylonTB.exe is not your specialty and you are likely unaware of their strengths and weaknesses, we decided to open this article with a list of the most important things you should know before proceeding with the removal. Browser hijackers – the type MyBabylonTB.exe belongs to – are famous for not only rigging your PC with endless ads, but also for trying to deceive you into allowing it to install more of their kind. And that’s in the best-case scenario. The worst that could happen is you get infected by a Ransomware – a class of viruses that will manually encrypt (basically lock up) your files and demand some form of payment to give the key for their release.
BUT! there is always something that you can use to protect yourself, and that is the knowledge exactly how these things will try to make a move on you. They will always, without exception, ask you to give them an accept on whatever it is they’re trying to do. So we want you to, naturally, ignore everything you see and just focus on the removal. The most relevant tricks that MyBabylonTB.exe will try to play on you are :
An elaborate scheme that sees the virus impersonate updates for some of the most popular programs on the net. It aims itself only at the ones that have the highest percentage chance to on your system. The prevalent faces are: Windows Updates, Java, Flash Player, Acrobat Reader.
The second one is less a trick and more a product of the advertisements. If you mistakenly click on them, they may open other websites in new tabs, not just the target for the advertisement. These other websites are filled with malware and are usually set to start downloading a .exe file after a few seconds. We implore you to cancel the download when you see it, or if you fail to do so, open the Task Manager’s Processes tab at once and stop the process you believe is connected to the setup that will start. But do NOT click on “Exit” in the installer. These things are set to install anyway, so it doesn’t matter what you click, they will do it anyway.
Alternatively MyBabylonTB.exe likes to take the face of an anti-virus program that pops up and asks you politely to let you scan. Or to update its database. Or something else most people wouldn’t think of. But because the majority of users always trust an anti-virus program, they get deceived. Popular programs it can pose as are, just like in the first example, very famous anti-virus programs in the vein of Kaspersky or Norton.
