This is the ticker but not exclusive to 64 bit systems,
People do not review "Optional" windows updates so they end up with All of the new releases,
Which makes for a very unpredictable Wednesday morning

I once accidently caught this bugger. I think I removed it with the Revo uninstaller - advanced option.

There are different answers since there was some confusion about which problem was being solved:
1) Using Bing as a search engine in IE or some other browser, or
2) The Bing Toolbar (a piece of installed software that is the browser toolbar).

It was hidden in a microsoft silverlight auto download on my computer. Just uninstall and regular chrome pops back up.

Hi. Is there an easy way (setting, registry key, etc.) to remove the default toolbar on Explorer windows (the one with Organize, Share with, Burn, etc.)? It's just in the way since I never use it. Thanks.
