Whenever I type a website in the address bar it also comes as a search in bearshare. How do i remove bearshare web search. I have removed everything possible
Something that you have downloaded/installed on your system has changed your keyword.URL preference to http://search.bearshare.com/web?src=ffb&q=. If the information entered in the URL/location bar can not be resolved, this will cause searches from the URL/location bar to go to the setting in keyword.URL pref. Completely uninstalling Bearshare can be difficult. Be careful what you download!
Reset keyword.URL preference -Enter about:config in the address/URL bar and press the Enter key -If you see a warning, accept it (Promise that you will be careful) -Filter = keyword.url -Below the Filter, right-click on keyword.URL and choose "Reset" -Restart Firefox (File > Restart Firefox)

Along with using the suggestion of about:config >>> keyword.URL you can also go to about:config and type bear into the filter box. For me, this brought up 3 other places where bearshare had become my search preferences. Just delete those to blank, or put in your own preferences.
Go to MY COMPUTER - PROGRAMS, then the name of hidden files to delete icons etc. Presto - everything gone.
To delete this annoyance you will need to delete all instances of 'bearshare' in the registry. There's about 7 - 10 keys all up.
Start > Run > Type 'regedit' > Tap 'F3', search 'bearshare' > enter > delete > F3 > Rinse-Repeat.
"Bob121" above me is right! You need to uninstall the mediabar and here is how to do that it worked for me and if you ask me its the right way instead of just deleting and resetting stuff
1. Open my computer
2. Go in your main hdd (usually c
3. Open Program Files (on my windows 7 hp its in "program files (x86)"
4. Find "BearShare Applications" and open
5. Next open mediabar folder and find the uninstall file.
6. Uninstall and your all done just dont forget to change home page and restart firefox or iinternet explorer.
This is what solved my problem. If you could not find it in add\remove programs its because you already uninstalled "bearshare" but not that annoying mediabar page search thing which came with bearshare but uninstalls seperately. Hope this helps and or solves your problem!
