I want to get rid of BING!!!

my Google default search engine has suddenly changed into BING search which I ever dislike in my life!! whenever I types a word in the address bar. I used all available solutions (about:config, disabling all bing pugins, uninstalling bing, removing zugo and search in the control panel) but to no avail. I am completely depressed. Pleas help me regain back Google. Thanks.

This happened

Just once or twice

Re: I want to get rid of BING!!!

I did all that was stated in the instruction but all ended up in a fiasco!! Who told Microsoft that everybody want to use BING (shit). This is a bullshit way of promoting this search engine.

Please help me remove this bing thing. Thanks.

Bing has imposed itself as my search engine and i like Google. I will change to Apple if i have to.

control panel / remove program / if you do not see bing toolbar, look for a toolbar naming a function on the same toolbar to the right of the bing window and delete it.

I want to get rid of Bing. I did not want it to begin with. Please, help me. I hate this. I am not going to use Mozilla Firefox if I cannot fix it.

Re: I want to get rid of BING!!!

I too have been hijacked by MS's Bing. I have tried several things to take it off my Firefox search. I have taken it off Add-ons, went to control panel and removed it from my "Add or Remove," I have also went to my internet options and made sure that my search engine was not Bing(which it was defaulted as) to be sure it was Google. I did a restart and boom..."I did it!" NOPE, I still have problems when I just type in the address bar such as "AutoTrader," I get a Bing list of links. I am so **** tired of MS taking over! Let me make my own decisions! HELP PLEASE!

Re: I want to get rid of BING!!!

ok... so this was bugging me like WHOA, especially because when I would open a new tab, there is the bing bar... when i would try to open an email from my browser the message would immediately disappear to be replaced by this dam bing bar. Soo... I went searching in my program files folder and in C:\Program Files I found a folder labled simply "search bar". Opened it up and there was an uninstal program there (program said it was powered by Zugo i believe) Turns out this is the bing update. Ran the uninstall program and voila!! Everything is back to normal, no more bing toolbar showing up in my browser.
