What's not to like about Bing? would use no other on my 4 PC's, for sure not Google, which has the re-direct virus in it!

RE: how to uninstall Bing

I had too many tool bars and I thought if I remove it I could get my veiw botton back.Since then I have solved the problem and Bing is still binging.

RE: how to uninstall Bing

Sounds like bing has been set as the default search engine. You need to manage the search engines. I would Google manage search engines.

Google does not have a Re-direct virus in it. The re-direct virus can be caused by a number of things these days the most likely suspect is the TDS Rootkit and it does affect Google searches but not directly caused by using Google...
