I just Signed up with Charter Cable service for my ISP

When i open up IE 9 and do a search, it redirects me to Charters search page. I have checked my search provider settings, and i have it set to search with Bing.

So, how can i get the search function to stop redirecting to Charter? Most of the whole first page with them are "sponsored sites" which is nothing more that advertisments. I want to "search" not to be bombarded with usless links.

It does not seem to be doing this with Firefox.

I think i just fixed it.

I did a search for "search redirect to charter cable" and found on the wikipedia page for Charter that you can select a cookie to install and opt out. I did that, and the redirect seems to stop.
