Hi,

 

If you want to remove MSN as your default homepage, please refer to these steps:

 

1. Open a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer)

2. Go to Tools menu then Internet Options.

3. Under General tab, look for Homepage. Click on Use blank if you don't want to use any default homepage when opening a browser.

4. Click OK.

 

If you're referring to the Bing bar that you want to remove, you can disable it using these steps:

 

1. Open a browser (e.gInternet Explorer)

2 . On the Tools Menu, click Manage Add-ons.

3. From the Toolbars and Extensions, Select Bing bar.

4. If it says Enabled, Click the Disable button.

5. Click Close.

 

Or you can also uninstall it using these steps:

 

1. Go to Start button then Control Panel.

2. Click on Programs. Under Programs and Features, click on Uninstall a program.

3. Look for the Bing Bar. Right-click and select uninstall.

 

As for you issue with your Windows Live ID, can you please elaborate more about it so that we can properly assist you with it.

 

Thanks!

Hello Jacquilyn_C.....& thank you for your quick reply......I did as you said and used blank and that worked so just need a few days to see how it goes.     Next went toolbars&extensions, where I have 6 elements, top down=Bing Bar..,Searchqu Toolbar...,Searchqu Toolbar...,Codecv Class..., Bing Bar Helper...,Yontoo Layers...,they were all disabled except Codecv(enabled) so I set all 6 to enable.        Next I went ControlPanel-Programs, Bing Bar still there, cant uninstall as Path not found etc...I think it wants me to re-Download the original program which had all these elements as some of the files are missing. So if you can tell me which exact windows program that they belong to...then I can try and delete it & download a fresh version from Microsoft, which could fill in the missing files etc       Next funny as it seems but my Windows Live account let me in somewhat, after I had read your email and tried doing things while still reading your email in hotmail,I signed out & it went to a IE8 welcome screen & then into Win Live acc screen on it own, and I found some more info, which I wish to leave until after I sort toolbar&extension, but Live did let me sign in fine which is good...yes...so I look forward to your reply..yours sincerely liam k

This old, old thread dealt originally with IE8 on Windows 7.

1. Which version of Windows are you running?

2. Which version of Internet Explorer or other browser?

3. If running Windows 10, are you using the Edge browser or Internet Explorer?

4. Are you trying to remove Bing as a search provider or Bing/MSN as the homepage?

I have tried many times getting rid of MSN News page using internet options, but it did not work, simply because they inserted a spyware in my programming file and no matter what you do it always triggered back. How I fix it? Download free Spybot, God bless them always, install it and let it run and no more that rubbish.
