    You do not specifically say so I will assume Bing Toolbar and Bing search engine. There should be a Bing Toolbar listed in your Control Panel, Programs and Features. if so just highlight it and choose Uninstall. Since Bing is a search engine you might also see Bing as the search engine when you try a web search. Look at Internet Options, General tab, Search section, Settings. You can add or delete search engines here.

    • In IE 8, there is Tools or manage addons.
    • Click on search providers than Click on Bing
    • Click remove. Or, if you want to keep it but not as default, click on the search provider you want to be default, click set as default.
    • Now, your Internet Explorer 8 are free from BING
