I want to remove the HP Bing Toolbar from IE8, but can find no reference to it in the Control Panel under Add/Remove Programs. Does anyone know how I can do this?  I have Window 7.Thanks in advance.

    Hi, thank you for the help, but that doesn't uninstall the toolbar, I don't think, but only disables it.

    Accepted Solution

    Check for any of the following entries in your programs list (control panel):

    Microsoft Live Search Tool Bar
    Bing Toolbar
    HP Bing Toolbar

    If you see any of those, uninstall them.

    The "Microsoft Live Search Tool Bar" was the culprit. Thanks, I was able to uninstall it in the Control Panel.
