That's been my experience with Babylon, too, until now. "B/babylon" and every combination with * I could think of yielded nothing, yet whenever I opened a new tab in IE or FF it appeared to be a standard Google search page but the page title was "Babylon Search". Even when I pressed the Windows key and typed in "www.google.com" the Babylon page still came up. Same with Yahoo, MSN, CNN, etc.. Never seen anything like it.
You must have sent me a subliminal message last night. I could not for the life of me remember "ComboFix". Around 11:30 it finally came to me. I tried running it and it froze, too, in regular Windows and in Safe Mode. I just finally got sick of the BS and installed Windows 7. Fortunately the guy had nothing
on his computer-no documents, no pictures, music, or video. No bookmarks. I mean zippo! Apparently, all he does is pay bills, check email and putz around the Internet. Thank God. There really wan't any data to lose. Whatever was locking up his machine was just a major annoyance more than anything malevolent, I think anyway. He hadn't been able to log into his bank account or email since the browsers started freezing so they didn't get his passwords, or at least I hope not.
On the subject of the drive docks, I just bought a USB 3.0 PCIE x1 card for an external drive I got a deal on. I'm looking at this dock http://www.amazon.com/SATA-Hard-Drive-Docking-Station/dp/B005Z1CBII/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368732795&sr=8-1&keywords=ide%2Fsata+usb+3.0+hard+drive+dock
. Wondering what's the opinion on USB 3.0 and whether this dock is worth the extra $20.
