    Bing

    My computer skills are average at best. My problem is this. In my manage add on,s I have Google search and Bing. My home page is DuckDuckGo search. I had no option to remove Google, maybe because I still have gmail.
    I disabled Google Search, I had that option, and it,s fine.
    I had option to remove Bing, so I did, at times Bing appears on add on list enabled. Can I get rid of Bing?
    Thanks Chuck

    Chuck,

    OS Version? Browser & Version?

    I've eliminated Bing from IE 11 on Win 8.1 Update 1 64 Bit. However, I do have Google as my Default search engine. You should be able to eliminate all but your Default search engine.

    Chuck,

    IE 10 is a Browser! IE 11 is a free upgrade from MS you can download it here. Make sure to select the one for your version of Windows!

    Also, you MUST have a default browser, until you set something other than Bing to be your default you will not be able to delete Bing. HTH

    Chuckracer, set your default search site to Google; then use Wise Plugin Manager to remove Bing. Bing can be made to stay away; however, set your Windows Update to notify you, that you will decide what to download and install. 'Cause in automatic mode, your Bing'll always Bling Back.
