Windows 7: Getting rid of Bing

Getting rid of Bing

On FF, I used to be able to type in a partial url and FF would get the rest and go there. Now, Bing interrupts, forcing me to type the entire url. I've removed Bing from the search engine list but that didn't help.

How do I get rid of Bing?

BTW, since the last MS update, it also infiltrated FF and made MSM my home page. This is making me think about going back to Linux.

Look in Control Panel>Programs and Features for any Bing listings to uninstall.

Make sure you removed Bing from the Search Engine list completely, replaced it with Google set to Default, and Bing didn't return.

Cannot find Bing anywhere on computer but it still pops up in the browser if I don't complete the url.
