I had google toolbar on my computer for ages...now all of a sudden the toolbar is there but google is missing. It seems to have been hijacked by BING-which I hate. I have to continuoisly download googel toolbar to get it. Than when turn my computer off and restart it again is gone. Anyone can you help me???? I looked everywhere to remove it but it seems to have hidden itself -so I can not remove it.

Bing is a pain.
There are options to disable but I prefere the following

Uninstall all toolbars thus:
Use revo to uninstall it (including google toolbar/bing and ask.com)

You know it's going to be tilted toward MS. :)

I tried the Revo software but it didn't work. Bing is not listed. How do I find it? It's hidden somewhere. What else can I try.
