I understand that the microsoft search enhancement pack is not a virus however it was installed against my will with no consent as part of a update.

i want it out of my system because i do not like strange processes with questionable privacy risks and bing bars that keep coming back.

this item doesn't come with a uninstaller and i was unable to find any significant help.

but i want it out of my system completely i don't want a single file left in that folder. i was tempted to just remove the bho entries and nuke the folder with a file shredder but i have a feeling microsoft in their infinite idiocy did something petty that can crash my computer if i just brute force it out

i also know that this is not required for windows to run since my computer was running without it for years

Hi mikeloeven,

This doesn't sound like a virus / malware issue but see if the instructions on this page helps.

If not, try the other links found here

If those don't help please post your problem in the operating system forum for your operating system. You will probably get more attention to your problem there, if the above links don't do it for you.

Good luck
