    I am using Windows 7 and I continuously get a popup with an invitation to install Bing. I don't want to do that or to get the message - how can I get rid of it? It has no option that will allow me to delete it.

    Thanks.

    Hmm, never seen it, must be something to do with IE8 or something in Windows Live?

    Perhaps you didn't finish the IE8 Add-ons/Accelerators/Search engines wizard on first use? I have Google set for my default search provider and removed Bing then set IE to lock the setting.

    Open IE > Alt > Tools > Manage Add-ons - from there you should be able to fix it to your liking .

    It may have to do with Windows Live. Anything I can do now?

    This is the test forum, and people won't come here to read posts. If you really want someone to respond to your request then try posting it in one of the other forums, probably Internet Explorer, depending on where this prompt is coming from.
