You could always set the desktop up for a game of Bingo.

Google search results are found to be polluted with far more questionable sites over what is seen when using Bing. The Web Of Trust addon for IE as well as other browsers is a security tool that will rate each site in the results and even has their own search engine as an alternative. The results however tend to be a bit less then others.

John’s Background Switcher John's Adventures that I use, and have already linked to in this thread has options to find and use suitable wallpaper images from the web, ( from Picasa, Flickr, Etc), as well as on your own systems. This may give you the wallpapers you wish without the Bing Bar

It also has generic search options which you can fine tune, (eg 1920x1080 nature images), and has options to use Google image search and/or Bing image search

I cannot recommend the program enough, you'll never be bored with your wallpaper

Sounds like a great alternative there! Barman58

Not wanting to see wallpapers changed automatically but having one for each monitor I simply reset the UltraMon profile here when having the Bing Desktop active. That allows the search block to be displayed while keeping the present profile.

Unfortunately the one thing lacking is a dual display setting seen with either this or the Bing program itself.
