    I know it has something to do with making Bing your home page..
    I'm not bothering with it but thought maybe others have gotten it.

    It was not making Bing your homepage. It is to download and install a small application to make a Bing photo your wallpaper which changes daily and enable a search box on your desktop.

    I ignored it as I don't want another application I won't really use installed and started when I boot my system.

    Yes Joe, you're right.
    I remember reading that it would do that..I got a little confused..

    I need that like I need a hole in my head...

    I was curious if anyone tried it.
