    Should you be talking about the Bing Desktop, uninstall it in the Uninstall a Program feature of the Control Panel.

    Ah-if only it was that simple. No bing to remove. I could hack the register I guess but I don't want to do that.

    Is this another take it an like it?

    I like Bing as my search engine-HATE Google (Big Brothers Big Brother)

    AEdit: used Bing in Win 8 for a while-no issues. As soon as I updated to Win 8.1 , disaster.

    Yup it's the same. But how to change the color you have to go to personalize (where you change desktop backgrounds and color sound...etc, and choose a high contrast theme and set your system colors up here:Attachment 55891 Then your bing in internet explorer will look with my settings anyhow like this:
