Am I the only one sick of Bing Desktop appearing as an update in XP, Vista, 7 & 8? When you check off to hide the update, it grows back again like a fungus. Very nice of Microsoft to be so pushy.

No confusion here. I am being hounded to DOWNLOAD Bing Desktop as a Windows update, and although I uncheck the box and select hide update each time I update, the offer comes back again........like a fungus.

It's just something that they always push towards you as they are likely making money off it when you install it. Not sure if you can do anything except just marking it as hide each time.
