Can't use Bing search; try to open and get malware block msg. No indication on my Malware Anti-malware program of any amlware.
I believe my Bing software has become corrupt and/or infected with a "virus" or other "malware". My "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program blocks Bing when I try to access it. When I check my anti-malware program for answer as to why the website is blocked, I cannot find any information for the block. How can I correct this problem so that I can use Bing search?
