  • carole

    how do i disengage BING all together.

    thank you

  • Lou

    I really don’t like BING and I also want to know how to get rid of it…….

  • Brian

    I’ve have been trying to dissable bing and all its stuff, and I cant. I think that this overly pain in the but program is preventing me from doing so, by not having a delete or a dissable button on the screen, like normal search engines like yahoo or google, aol, aim, ect do. It is upseting me and, it is intrapment. it is the same with that msn that poped on my computer. picture this you walk into a store and then they lock the door, and tell you that you cant leave, and you have a coupple of hundred in your pocket.

  • Adam

    If anyone has found out how to get rid of Bing, please post

    DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW HOW TO INITIATE A LAWSUIT, SUING MICROSOFT FOR INVASIVE AND USELESS BING THAT CAN’T BE TOTALLY DISABLED???

  • vinny

    i”ve emailed till my digets bleed:get this crap off my home page. google and yahoo should have a retierment program when their contracteez have to go on welfare: YER NOT ALLOWED TO WORK FOR MSN

  • Ann

    However can I wipe bing off my computer and re-install yahoo? Please explain it to me free of jargon and in a way an old- timer like me can understand.

  • Paul

    Not being able to disable Bing is typical MS crap. They think you are a trapped customer and they will make you like their products. However, I am simply using Firefox Mozila web browser. it is easier and very user friendly.

  • Mary Lou Smith

    I want to disable bing…looks like many others want to do so also…is this not possible?????

  • Gggal2

    I’m trying to get out of Bing. How in the heck does one get out of Bing. I hate it !!!

  • Sin420707

    My pc has been slower ever since i tried to do a internet expl.8 upgrade, i did a system restore and my pc IE is back to what it was but guess what dint go away.. BING! Grr its still making my start up slower and i cant seem to turn the damn thing off! If anyone knows how to disable bing please tell me !!

  • Crhenn

    Reading all the ‘posts’ on this page is incredible to me…how can this be true? Now I don’t feel alone as I can’t stand BING and the way its ‘questions’ only have options where YOU MUST SELECT…I don’t care if it were the best program ever…it needs an OFF button…I”d be glad to sign up on lawsuit…I see alot of these comments are listed as a year old…HAS THE NIGHTMARE BEEN ALLOWED TO CONTINUE? WHERE ARE WE ‘DARK CITY’???

  • Crhenn

    and if you search on ‘disable bing’ you get sent to a bing-like message where it appears to help you but in effect you just shut down some the bing visuals…NOT BING ITSELF…I’m even more convinced we’re in ‘Dark City’

    I like the old my msn tool bar, I’ve been fighting mircrosoft updates from installing the bing bar, and other apps that I’m not interested in. I bought a Dell a year ago, the sales person said it didn’t have pre installed programs, I had to do that myself. Well ok… What bothers me is how underhanded microsoft and dell has been with windows 7. I installed programs, now windows updates are literally overtaking my computer. installing what they want… I feel like I’m playing war games with MS and Dell. Bing is on my computer, I’m ok with that, but I don’t want the Bing Tool Bar, and other apps Microsoft keeps instsalling. Defaults should belong the computer owner. MSN is my home page, my choice… I’m not interested in playing search engine war, nor am I interested in feeling like i’m in a communist country where I have lost choice.

  • Jlouder

    How to I disable Bing as home page

  • Anita Roberts

    Go to google and tell it you want Yahoo, AOL, MSN or whichever you want as homepage and it will tell you how to re=install one you want…I know you go to tools, internet options, general and type in http://www.yahoo.com and it will give you yahoo as your home page and override bing.

  • Bluelibraryperformance

  • Onthebay3

    i WANT TO KEEP MSN BUT WANT NOTHING OF BING ANYWHERE ON MY HOME PAGE OR ANYWHERE ELSE ON MY COMPUTER!!!!!!!!……HELP????!!!!!!

  • Jazzman954

    I found a very easy way to get rid of Bing. If you go to your Internet Options you will see that Bing has placed itself first . Just click on the highlighted line where you see Bing and backspace till it’s gone then hit apply. Presto it’s gone like magic.

  • Jazzman954

    Try turning off the automatic update on your computer?

  • geoff Foxwell

    Re  “ I want Bing off my PC as it really is crap”. For about two year’s now Bing has been attempting to insinuate itself onto my PC,it now seem’s to have taken over from
    Google. The trouble is that when I attempt to use it nothing ever come’s of my enquiries. Glad I found this site anyway as I thought that I was getting paranoid,somehow it’s taken over where Google left off and is actually now operating from the box on my PC, extreme top right. Is there no law against tosser’s hacking into peoples PC’s and introducing worthless crap onto the screen?,What do we have firewall’s for and antivirus prog’s. I thought they may have helped?, AFI = “As fucking if”. Any idea where it’s coming from,at least what country ?.

  • Mathew Fines

    I want to be RID OF BING, and allow Google to be my browser — I have tried over, and over, — and Bing keeps ‘creeping back in’!!!

  • The Free Fox

    onthebay3. Well done this is the answer. There may be a case for Microsoft to answer in court for all the inconvenience caused by the bing MSN unsolicited download with their explorer 8 search engine. You get this even if you choose custom install. I suggest anyone reading this check the legal position and if they find they have a case sue these people and stop them from ruining other people’s lives with unsolicited material that you have to fight to remove!

  • Lady Di

    I want bing off the bottom right of my screen for address have tryed everything,it pop up everytime i turn my computer on it is very annoying

  • curt

    Doesn’t everyone’sbrowser have an option to add or change a home page? What’s the big deal? Look for the house icon and then select the option to change the homepage when you’re at a page you’d rather use like Google or Yahoo or Facebook, etc. Or am I missing something?

  • toli walling

    i do not want bing please remove im slow at doing comp prob thanks toli walling wallingtoli@yahoo.com

  • Ahria

    Suddenly Bing and the Whitesmoke toolbar showed up on my computer. It is now much slower – almost inoperable – why? I didn’t ask for this and I am spending too much time trying to get rid of Bing. My computer is old, says low memory, although I don’t know why, and I just wanted to plod on through for awhile. This should be illegal. No one asked if I wanted Bing – and I don’t!!! I saw on tv there is an ad where people are asked which service provider is better and they are surprised it is Bing. No, it isn’t better. It is HELLLLLLLLL having it on my computer and I resent the intrusion – feel it is a total violation. Why are so many having problems and where is one place to go to complain – ie a government agency, perhaps, in Canada. How did Bing come to be on my computer and how did they get the right to violate, infiltrate, inconvenience, and more so many people’s computers. It is horrifying to think such a terrible search engine can be allowed to be thrust upon so many.

  • Ahria

    I just got Bing and it is now February 2013. I want it OFF my computer!!!

  • me

    Both Google and Bing will not allow you to speak to a person , spent two hours being told my call was important to them, I think not.

  • melly

    take BING OFF OFF OFF my computer!!!!!!!!! I have tried several sites to just delete you, they don’t work. GET OUT OF MY COMPUTER

  • jim

    bing is so bad on my hp with windows 8 wish I had purchased a apple computer

  • JP

    I followed the suggestion of removing Bing by blocking the site in my control panel internet options area. So far it has worked. For backup I also went to their site and choose the option of not receiving info in the tools section. Just like most everyone here, this program sucks and is an attempt at internet control. Needs to be put to rest.

  • laurrr

    i did it! I GOT RID OF BING! all i did was, when I opened a new tab on my google chrome, and stupid bing popped up, I clicked on “restore” in the bottom left-hand corner. Now when I open a new tab, the google search window pops up, which is what I had before/wanted. hope this helps!

  • fer

  • craig732

    First off, I would like to thank the author of this article for this information. But I am amazed as I read the comments here. Any Bing application can easily be removed from your computer. Yes, Microsoft will reinstall it if you have automatic updates. So turn them off. If you don’t know how to do this do a quick web search and you will get thousands of pages telling you how.

  • Cavedude

    Bluelibraryperformance, you said it all, I dont think BING even cares what we ask for.

  • elena

    this bing is pin in the neck, I want this off of my screen, please

  • Ms_Shy

    I just want this shit off my computer

  • Bill Sterling

    Is there a program that has one purpose, to block Bing?

  • Anna Otaku

    this night mare is still going. I had to got to a computer rest point today because i tried to get it off and lost my net. all over a stupid up grad for my firefox…

  • Anna Otaku

    it doesn’t always work. that is the big deal. when you lose your net completely and have to go to a reset point time and time again it gets old quick.

  • Anna Otaku

    GOD Bing is like a bad computer virus. it is bad enough Microsoft can’t make up it’s mind rather they want their new laptops to be a stupid tablet or a computer with that crappy windows 8, that my sister has had for 2 years now and still can’t work the dumb thing and has to take her computer to best buy more time than i can count. but i can’t work my net right because every time it needs a stupid up grade Bing comes up. by the time i try to get it off i have no Net at all and have to use a reset point just to get back to my original settings. Saving to get a mac now because i am done with Microsoft. The sad truth is i still won’t be able to cut them out of my life since they are taking over Firefox with their crappy bing.
