How to stop MSN.com/Bing Nag, IE11?

I got rid of Bing/MSN over a year ago, and use & happily use Google!-
After my last Win update (6 days ago), every time I 1st open IE11, a Tab opens saying switch to MSN/Bing-
I untick checks/ Save settings, and reopen IE11 twice.
It's gone until the next days cold startup, them I get nagged again!

Is there some way to permanently stop this Nag!?

Hi,

In Internet Explorer, click on the Gear symbol and then
select Internet Options > Settings, and tick the checkbox labelled Prevent programs from suggesting changes to my default search provider.

Hope that helps.

There is no "checkbox labelled Prevent programs from suggesting changes to my default search provider."?


BTW-I got sick of hassling with IE11's Bing nag, and installed Opera-
I already don't like it as you can't print selection, only the whole page, and crops text to the right!
