MS IE Hi Jacked?

All of a sudden when I use search the results page that comes up is Time Warner. I have my browser set to Bing. I have searched all places that I could think of and can't find where I am being Hi Jacked. Can somebody tip me off. BTW I have loaded ver 11 but it was doing it prior to that.

Reset

I hadn't tried reset. But It didn't work.
I have scanned with:
MBAM
CCleaner
Norton IE Security
Microsoft Security Essentials
SpyBot

In IE addons the search provider is set to Bing and it is the only one available. I have searched my disk for "Yahoo" and deleted all references. Yahoo and Time Warner are collaborating on search. I called Time Warner. I had language difficulties with them and the tech seemed not to have a clue. I asked for someone to contact me. No return so far. I pay them for Internet access not to set my homepage and search provider. Can you tell I am becoming agitated?

Ctrl + e

That key stroke expands a dropdown from the address bar. The only thing showing was a history list and a Bing icon representing my provider.

Using AdwCleaner could be very helpful.

When you reset did you remember to Delete personal settings ?
Also when you first opened ie,
Did msn.com open
After reset and first opening ie you should get a popup box saying Add-ons are ready to be Enabled/ Click Don't enable.
Flash player should be the only suborn add-on which will not be disabled,
I would add this to the tutorials process

Also you say that Bing is the only "Available" search provider/ does this mean others are listed ?
Did you also remember to click on Show All add-ons on the bottom of the left column ?

Sounds like Time Warner is doing a DNS redirection on their end Bob. I found this thread on DSL Reports:

SB6580 high jacked DNS settings by "TWC search" - Time Warner Cable | DSLReports Forums

Not sure where this Opt out info is located, and since your contact with TWC was not very helpful, here's something to try.

Start> In search box type services.msc> Enter> Scroll down to DNS Client> Right click DNS Client> Properties> Set the service to Manual

See if Bing search returns. You'd ultimately have to have TWC fix this if I'm correct. Why the recent change would be a question as well.

If you get no help from them, you can see if switching DNS providers helps
