I am in desperate need of help from someone more computer literate than I am.
I have been trying to get rid of Bing (which I truly hate, I have never seen a more useless add-on) from Internet Explorer and Chrome. I have tried EVERY suggestion I found online as to how to do this. I successfully managed to remove Bing as a Search Provider via "manage add-ons". For all intensive purposes, it should be gone. I can find it nowhere on my computer. I was encouraged when I finally removed it completely as a search provider. However, every time I open a new tab in Internet Explorer or Chrome, it still pops up just like before. Like nothing happened. I have also tried every other method to get rid of it but they all failed. It is driving me bananas!
Does anyone out there have any idea why I cannot get rid of Bing?
Could it be some kind of malware/spyware? If so, what kind of anti-malware should I get to catch and destroy Bing? (It would need to be totally free- as I have no money to spend on it).
Thanks so much in advance for any help!!
Also, apologies in advance if I am using the wrong terminology anywhere in this post. I really do not know anything about computers.
