    Hi Loungers,
    I have just uninstalled 'Bing Bar' that appeared without warning in Firefox & IE8. Has it done the same to you?

    It now appears this "important" up date has been changed by MS. Going forward it will not be offered as an important update. Supposedly it was only offered to those people who already had the Windows Live Toolbar or MSN Toolbar installed. I have not seen this on my PCes yet, but perhaps that's because I do not use either of these older toolbars as well.

    I know I saw reports on some of the other forums I am on that it appeared on some with out those toolbars also. I think just having any windows live applications will trigger it too.

    Just found its origin, it was during installation of Windows 7 Codecs. Another lesson for me to read all first time.
