    Default Veoh and babylon and bprotector

    Alright, guys, there is a problem here. Some of you probably have it as well as me. I posted on Veoh's forums and was promptly dismissed so I'd like to let you know.

    When downloading the latest version of the Veoh player, you also get a "babylon toolbar". Buried in this "toolbar" is a nifty little virus called bProtectorForWindows. Neither of which can be removed by normal means.

    No major antivirus program I can find has any success in finding it, much less removing it, so it had to be done manually. If you've downloaded the Veoh player, and thus the "toolbar" which has no checkbox to say no, take a look at your taskmanager and see if this little creep is watching you.

    directions for removal here, if it is:

    Please also note, the Veoh player itself seems fine. It's stuck in the babylon thing that you end up downloading with it.

    Yeah the babylon toolbar is a menace... tries to sneak in with all kinds of software lately. Had to remove it from my GFs computer twice in the past few months.

    Glad I use Mac myself
    Contact me about technical and forum problems, not broken videos.

    I don't usually even mess with downloading something to watch a video. My job is finding sources so I just go elsewhere for that vid. They always want to give you some stupid toolbar that you just don't need.

    First off I want to truly thank Amys for posting this information. For someone such as myself who is not very computer savvy let alone literate this was extremely helpful to me. I have had this exact problem in the past several months where the babylon tool bar just gets added on, this becomes increasing difficult when trying to stream (for me) anime series or shows and in order to watch the complete episode you have to download the Veoh player then it takes an act of congress to try to remove all that unwanted crap off your computer and in the process if you don't take the necessary steps the program still lingers like a cockroach that won't go away or die.

    Its refreshing to know there are members here at this site who will take the time to share their experiences and give very valuable information or helpful tips/tools to those who may have had the same problem(s) and don't know technically what to do to fix it or for those who are unaware and now may be more vigilant to protect their PC's better.

    But Apple got caught with thier pants down for not securing themselves enough against older viruses XD
    With the rise in people buying stupidly over priced phones and tablets by them theres more of a business on stealing data, money and w/e from Apple products these days.
    You gotta start being carfeul too.

    I purchased that a while back and still have this issue. Obviously I am technically doing something wrong then.
