Two programs that work for me.
Revo
Ccleaner
Use them wisely. Any removal program if use wrong can remove the wrong thing.
If by chance you still have problems, get back to us.

Layback Bear,

When I first opened your mail their were 2links to downlaod from MS. I download the first one (recommended & the second one disappeared.

How does downloading drivers help me get rid of the BING SEARCH BAR?

I use the REVO UNINSTALLER and think it it is the greatest tool since sliced bread--unfornutaley the BING BAR is not listed in REVO--I tried removing it thru MANAGE ADD ONS but that didn't work.

Any more ideas please?

I'm glad you got rid of that pesky thing.
Did you try Cclean? No one program does it all. Another program I use at times to find and remove things is Search Everything. You might want to take a look at it for the future.
Please note: The Bing Tool Bar and the Ask Tool Bar come with some programs you download, you have to un-check them before completing the download.
