Although Chrome shows as my default I noticed that Bing is still listed among the servers, would it be best to leave it there (where I can see it) or uninstall it?
Thanks once again to all of you for your time and concern, I'm very grateful.Roy
When you install ANY program, like Super Anti Spyware, you MUST read every word, of every screen, or you'll be installing Chrome or something else that you really don't want of need. There is NO WAY on God's green earth that I want Chrome or Bing on my computer. I'd rather have a virus, it's easier to get rid of.

Bing will quite frankly HIJACK your selected search engine. Can you say "VIRUS"? Decent programs don't do stuff like that. Those things get on my computer too, when I'm not paying strict attention to what I'm doing, or if I'm just drunk. But everything stops, till I get rid of them..... even if I have to do a System Restore. And in rare instances, I may even have to do a Backup Image Restore. But I'll get rid of the 'Invaders' one way or another.

Good Luck, Mate!
