I mean it covers the whole page. but I don't want it. I want to use the other (msn) homepage. so how do I force this bing crap out of the way so I can get what I want?

    Navigate to Control Panel-Windows Update,
    in the bottom left pane under 'See also', click on Installed Updates,
    in the next window click on Bing Desktop v1.3.1 and choose Uninstall.
