    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    I am not talking about Bing Desktop, it is simply a Bing Search Bar that now appears when clicking a new tab in IE11

    I had it too, I just went to take a screen shot and it's gone. The last thing I did was change my default search provider from Bing to Google in manage add-ons? I deleted Bing and added Google. One of the patch Tuesday updates added it, don't know which one though. I'm really getting tiered of having Bing shoved down my throat.

    I had a Bing Search Bar added to the top of my New Tabs screen in IE. I went into manage add-ons and under Search Providers, I added Google and deleted Bing. Now it's gone? And good riddance.

    Noticed that too! nifty, though I just use the address bar for my searches, so also useless lol.

    I got over $65 dollars worth of merchandise and gift cards just from doing normal bing searches. I think Google and Bing are comparable, so I use the one that pays

    What it did for me was make Bing search the default whereas I had Google search set as default before the updates. Changes like that without my consent are pushing it a little.

    I'm getting quit annoyed at having Bing shoved down my throat.
