BING - How do I get rid of it??

by xxSaffyxx / March 5, 2010 12:42 PM PST

This annoying little "helpmate" window is aggravating. It's often offered when you download something, and I've made efforts to untick the box every time it comes up. However, it's slipped in from somewhere and I don't want the window opening up for me everytime I open the computer.

Can anyone advise how to remove it?

I'm operating on Vista system.

More information please...

1.) What browser(s) are you using?
2.) Is this related to a download from a specific site or any site?
3.) When did this first appear?
4.) What does the window look like/state?

In short, Bing, the Windows live product, is just a search engine and does not extend to other sites, install on your computer, etc. Thus, more information is needed to determine what the source of the issue is.

Let us know.

(NT) NT- I don't think this has anything to do with Bing.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
