When I go to Manage Add-ons, before I deleted the bing.coms and live.coms, Google was my default search engine. My home page has never changed.
It's when I initially open IE - 2 windows open up simultaneously. One is my homepage (Tupperware) and one is Bing. But if I open a new tap it comes up Google.
I know Bing is not in the original version of IE8. What happended was the other day, I received an update for IE8 called IE8 Optimizer. When I downloaded it I didn't know they were attaching Bing and MSN Toolbar, but nothing happens when you try to uninstall MSN toolbar.
I have a dell and don't have the XP disc to reinstall and wouldn't necessarily know how to save the stuff on my computer before installing. And I don't know how to go thru SP3 to download XP unless its via office.microsoft.com.?
Do you think if I uninstall the IE8 original version and reinstall that Bing would go away?
I tried what Frank suggested by going to my computer > c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts and adding those to addresses.....it didn't work either. When I opened IE back up, the same 2 windows open up.
