"Bing" has become default search engin, want "Google" back, how 2 do it.

I have "google" as my default search engine in IE preferences, USED to be in firefox also, a few days ago, "bing" shows up as search engine. I cannot find "bing" under ANY program stuff anywhere to remove it. What happened, and how do I get "google" back? Even if I type in "google" in the location bar & hit "enter' it switches back to "bing."

Thanks for the quick reply.

I don't use "chrome,," but I followed the instructions and had to go a little deeper into the "preference" stuff. If you type in "browser" it gives the full list of related info, found 2 other locations where "bing" was listed, "home page" was one of those, changed all to "google" and it worked.

Thanks again!
