      Ummm…. they cannot do that for you. You can plainly see that this site is here to help people with their computer problems. Besides posting asinine comments such as, “please delete babylon–search from my computer” doesn’t help your cause in any way. Why? Because they cannot physically go into your computer.

    I installed Spyhunter 4 and found 773+ and the scan is still going. I also found that something called Trojan.Ransomlock.N is a 5/5 risk rating and can control your computer! I will get rid of that then!
