    Will this work to remove this program?


    Someone on the general forum sent me this info to remove BING from my computer. . Can't find my original post on the General Forum. I asked for it to be put back there and it was last night. But now I can't find it.

    "Run SFC /SCANNOW to repair any errors. Run DISM /ONLINE /CLEANUP-IMAGE /RESTOREHEALTH to correct any errors not found by SFC.


    You may need to uninstall updates KB3022345 and the related update KB3068708 for SFC and DISM to run correctly - see DISM Command Fails

    Use Autoruns to disable any startup programs, services and driver not required (be careful). I've just upgraded a system and found some of the boot delay was due to an external USB HDD having a partition marked Active instead of Inactive (I used Mini Tool Partition Wizard to adjust this)."

    I was sent this info to Delete Bing.
    I have no idea what SCF/scannow is. or
    Run DISM /ONLINE /CLEANUP-IMAGE /RESTOREHEALTH to correct any errors not found by SFC.
