Windows 7: creating a .reg file for firefox ?

creating a .reg file for firefox ?

Those of us who use the Shark007 codec packs are certainly aware that installing the bloody bing toolbar is not an option. That in itself doesn't bother me, it's easy enough to uninstall. Problem is, when uninstalled, it still screws with the firefox default search. Normally, when you type a few keywords into the address bar google will automatically take you to the right site, or, bring up a google page of links. Now, it's ALWAYS just a bing search page.

How can I make a .reg or similar file that I can simply "merge" after uninstalling the toolbar to revert back to these default settings?

Thanks!

Russell

Supposedly the fix is here. But be careful, I can't vouch for it.

So BingBar installs automatically now?

My solution is to use K-Lite

great! I'll give it a go, thanks! I certainly don't blame shark for wanting to make a few bucks from his hard work, but. . .

After awhile I just stopped updating. I use BD Rebuilder. I kept updating, then reinstalling the BDRB friendly Matroska splitter etc.. until I just figured why keep destabilizing my BDRB? It works so I quit fixing it. Glad to hear the Bad Bing Business is over though.
