Windows 7: Bing toolbar for IE

Bing toolbar for IE

If, like me, you don't use tool bars you'll find that at some stage you are forced to install Microsoft's Bing Bar without even knowing you're doing it...

After installing the following update - "Update for Microsoft Search Enhancement Pack" you will find that the next time you open IE (and possible other browsers but not been tested) you're faced with the Bing Bar, even though you never wanted to install it.


The update 'apparently' improves the homepage category functionality for Windows Live Toolbar, for MSN Toolbar, and for Bing Bar. But even if you don't have the Bing Bar installed, it goes right ahead and installs it for you. It doesn't install the other bars...

So, you have to uninstall software that you never installed in the first place...
