    Red face How do I get rid of Bing?

    I have somehow ended up with Bing on my computer when I use Internet Explorer. Is it a good thing? I don't think I want it - I didn't install it (knowingly) but I'm a woman, so that may make a few men nod! - How do I get rid of it please (if I should)? AND I will need instructions in very CLEAR terms!

    Remove its search engine. Its Microsoft's. Select the arrow by the magnifying glass / manage search providers. select bing then delete it

    in the search bar in the top right of IE, click the down arrow, there should be a list of search providers.

    if the one you want is not there, click on find more providers from the down arrow i specified.

    hope this helps.

    dammit speedy

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    It also has an amazing video search engine (must use US version though).

    Might as well keep it. Its just another search engine like Google or Yahoo.

    They've replaced live with BING.

    Rubbish.

    Don't panic

    You probably had Live Search as your default, and Microsoft has renamed it to Bing.

    If you don't like it follow the instructions mentioned by others, but it's not a virus anything to worry about.
