Can't get rid of Bing

I’m running Firefox 3.5.4 with XP Home.

The Bing Web page pops up whenever I enter just part of a web page name, i.e. “Netflex” gets Bing page with all the different sites with the word “Netflex”. I looked in Add/Remove and the subcategories of Add-ons and do not find an entry for either Bing or Search Bar. I ran a file search for “bing” and found “bing.xml” in Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\fkmiryyl.default\fkmiryy\default\search plugins. I moved bing.xml into My Documents but Bing still comes up. How can I get rid of Bing?
