A recent Windows Update package, marked "Important," quietly added Microsoft's "Search Helper" extension to both Internet Explorer and Firefox, all for the purpose of making a Bing toolbar work better.
Microsoft pushed out an Important-labeled update for its "Search Enhancement Pack." Many Windows users always install the Important updates, as they're where security issues are regularly fixed. What the "enhancement" really did, though, was install a package that helps Bing's toolbar better integrate itself with IE and Firefox—whether or not you have the Bing bar installed. You'll notice it because Firefox will report having a new add-on when you next start it after the update.
