Just launched Firefox this morning to find Microsoft has installed a huge Bing toolbar without asking me!?! They also changed my default search to Bing (as well as the context menu search on selected text) and attempted to change the home page. Same thing has happened in IE8.
- How do I uninstall them? (I can disable via FF extensions but not uninstall)
- How do I restore the default search to Google (from address bar and right-click content menu on selected text?
According to Mozilla...
"Microsoft's latest Windows Update (KB982217) installs these [Search Helper Extension and Bing Bar] in Firefox for everyone who's previously used Windows Live Toolbar, MSN Toolbar, Windows Live Essentials or the Bing Bar."
