    Bing Bar how do I get rid from IE


    Hi

    Updated my HP printer drivers today after recommended by the Print and Scan Doctor from HP but alas it bundled Bing Bar with it into IE. I goto to Manage Addons and more information but the remove button is greyed out and cant find it in the programs list. Malware bytes doesn't find it and Bing Bar is disabled as out of date in IE11. How do I get rid of it please?

    Surprised not showing in Programs and Features. This way gets rid of Bing search bar in IE 11. As search bar to disable is greyed out in IE 11, but this is not what you mean.
    Add, remove Bing Search Bar from IE New tab page

    Try to uninstall the HP software and install again, make sure not to select it. Was there ever a choice in software from HP ? Any other uninstallers on system ? For now can click View on menu of IE 11 select Toolbars and uncheck Bing Bar.
