Hello, I just signed up will introduce myself later right now I am I would like to deal with this stressor! I have searched and unfortunately I am not finding any recent post addressing the issue. If I missed them please let me know?
Windows 7, IE 11,Version 11.0.9600.17843IS, Update Version 11.0.20 (AVAST Anti Virus)
I Updated my version of IE 11 and in it was offered during the update to “Make BING Your Default Search Engine” Thought I would like to check it out and could easily delete it; however all regular methods of removing have been disabled. Go to Manage ADD-ONS Mouse has been disabled. Go to Search providers it will not let you delete Bing, go to “Find More Search Providers” and it takes you to
Going to the “ARROW” on the search bar and selecting the “ADD” option at the bottom where the Bing icon is takes you to the same address as above.
I have turned in a Work Order with Micro Soft and it has not been resolved. I also tried going to Change to GOOGLE as SEARCH ENGINE
http://www.google.com/homepage/search/sp-ie.html and the ability to select it has been disabled. You can place the pointer directly over it and click all day and nothing happens.
Additionally, System Restore will not work also. (I tried going back to a pre-update time.)
Interestingly I like BING; however I am not interested in being held hostage!
Thank you for any help.
