Two days ago I noticed that the address bar search in all of my browsers (FF, Chrome, Opera, IE, and Safari) has been redirected to bing.com. Even worse, it appears that I can no longer access local servers on my network because according to bing they use improper syntax (ie: http://ourserver) not having a .com or anything. As a web developer no longer able to access our companies local servers this has been particularly damaging.
Is there any way to undo this problem. It seems to have coincided with a Microsoft update.
An extensive web search has found many people running into this problems in particular browsers, but in my case it has taken over my entire computer and I have been unable to find any solutions. I tried updating the config settings in each browser to no avail. I checked my hosts file and it looks fine. I do not have the Bing toolbar nor any other search enhancing add-ons in any browser.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
