"Manage Add-ons" Box Appears Everytime We Open IE9

Everytime we open IE9 with our Windows 7 system a box appears titled "Manage Add-ons".  In the box it has "Search Providers" highlighted.  We have also noticed that we cannot make any changes to the search providers.  Please assist.

To change the search providers you must run IE with Admin rights. Do this by right-clicking IE FROM THE START MENU and selecting “Run as Administrator”. Your UAC will pop up and verify you want to do this. Confirm and then edit your search providers as you desire

Hmm. Go to find more providers and add yahoo or something and make it default. Restart IE and try remove Bing. Never failed for me yet not always a first. If that dosnt work reset IE settings and go de manual way of picking provider etc ...
Is Bing listed in programs to uninstall?

Tried all of that several times.  I cannot change the default and yes, Bing is the listed default.  I can change the order however.  It seems as though the service providers are corrupted.

A right nuisance!

Try this. Create a restore point first.
Relating to ie8 on xp but worth a shot .



I have had this issue since I installed IE8 on my XP Pro SP2 laptop.  I just did this and it fixed the issue for me.

1.Make sure IE 8 is closed then navigate to registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders2.Add a new “Expandable String value” inside the above mentioned key with a value name of “AppData” and a value data of “%USERPROFILE%\Application Data”.
3.Reopen IE 8 and see if you still get the error message.

Nope, now I can add a new service provider but I cannot change the default, delete the default and the box still always pops up upon opening IE.
