A client of mine has no problem using Bing on Chrome, but in IE8 (even with it reset to default) a search for terms inside of MSN's bing entry point causes and instant 404 error.  It does the same if he goes to and tried to search.

The hosts file is clean and a full virus scan with Avast shows no problems.  Additionally no spyware or malware is present (he uses MalwareBytes).  There is no proxy server setting in IE either, so it isn't that.

Please help!
