Bing seems ubiquitous.   I like Google Chrome but every time I post a question bingo it's Bing.   Any ideas how to get rid of it please - it's pants.

it would appear that perhapss the user would like to not have Bing as the default search engine. To select a default search engine, click on the wrench > options > search engine >click on drop down arrow and select the engine of choice and close. future searches will be done with the selected default search engine.

I don't know about that user, but I have set my default search engine to be Google, yet still every time I open Chrome I get that Bing page and I don't want to see Bing EVER.

Click on the Wrench menu
Click on the "Basics" tab
Make sure that Bing is NOT listed in the list of pages to open "On startup"
Make sure that Bing is not the "Home Page"
While you are here, you might as well make sure that "Google" is your "Default search:" selection.

I did the whole setting default to google chrome meaning I did the whole Wrench, then Basics, on startup n etc.  BUT IT STILL USES BING!!!  When I got back to check my settings, it DOES say google chrome is my current default!!  So basically I set it to google and it claims to use google but STILL uses BING!!!!   So far none of those solutions stated have helped.  Does ANY1 know of any other way?  Please help!

Check the programs and features section of the windows control panel.

Look for a program like bing bar or something. 

Maybe a program you installed is constantly changing your default search.

Zink -- the problem is that you are confusing Google Chrome which is a browser with Google which is a search engine as is BING (created by Microsoft as a competitor of Google). Your solution is to click on the Wrench > Options> Basics >Search >click on the drop down arrow and instead of showing the current selection of BING, choose Google. Now your searches will be done with Google in your Google Chrome (default) browser.

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat kamasensei 8/28/11 9:23 PM
I have done what Mur_phy suggested multiple times---and STILL f*cking Bing comes back like a bad smell.  Chrome is my default browser (yes I know the difference between a browser and an engine); even when I use different engines, Bing is hard to get rid of, but I have never had this much trouble getting rid of the little bastard!

HELP!

I am having the same problem with bing.  I hate it.  I what to have google and have that set as a default and 2 others keep interfering.  I uninstalled bing but that didn't help.  I have done all the things that all of you suggested and it still comes back and I can't see where the little bastard is hiding to delete it at its source.

Look down at the bottom left of the Bing search page. You will see that it is provided by Conduit. There is a restore button down there, if you click it you will restore chrome to it's settings, which will restore your search provider and what home page you have.
That is what fixed the problem for me, hope it works for you.

I got rid of bing and then my computer didn't work right.  After a little while it didn't work at all causing me to clean it and start all over.  Lost lots of stuff.  Seems that uninstalling bing takes away some of the things that make the computer work with the Internet.  Best to leave it alone and just ignore it.

I had the same problem.

I went to settings on chrome >> Extensions >> Remove any unnecessary extensions you have there.. I had u-torrent toolbar which was causing that.. I guess we get a free bing while downloading u-torrent.

my 2 cents.

Addendum:  I managed to restore Google as my default search provider (which also took away Conduit) by uninstalling/re-installing latest Google Chrome.  Caution: This also wipes out your "Bookmarks", so be sure to import a bookmark folder to alternate browser (ie; Internet Explorer or Firefox)such that your can reinstate to new Chrome.

When you open your Google Chrome Browser look at the far right of the screen where there is a 3 lines button named "Customize and control Google Chrome".
"Settings"
 "On Startup"
  "Open a specific page or set of pages" set pages (set pages is hyperlink)
   "Startup pages"
    "Search and then will have a website listed, if its bing delete" or just change the "Open a specific page or set of pages" to "Open the New Tab page"
Next check in
"Settings"
 "search"
  "Set which search engine is used when searching from the omnibox."
   "Manage search engines..."
    "choose the Search Engine you want"
Hope it helps!

Recent answers in this forum got us on the right track. THANKS!! But our solution was a little different. On the Google page, we went to settings > set pages (open) > deleted Conduit URLS > entered Google URL. BEFORE "save current pages", close the Bing tab (otherwise it won't go away). Then save current pages. MICROSOFT IS REALLY EVIL. Microsoft programmers know that they are making it very difficult for users to exercise their product choice.

I found the Conduit program in the Control Problem. It is called SearchProtect. I uninstalled it, and had no problems anymore. I don't know how it go there. I never downloaded it. None of the other responses on any forums managed to get rid of it.  It wasn't a broswer problem, because i checked Internet Explorer and Bing had also made itself my homepage there. So,  I knew it was something in te computer as opposed to the browser. Eventually i figured out that this Search Protect program was the source of all the trouble. DOes this help? I had no luck searching any of the other forums.

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat k. t. d. 10/15/13 5:20 AM
1. Click on top right corner symbol to open up your Google Settings
2. Goto "Search" and click on "Manage search engines"
3. Delete any references to "Bing Search" and close the manager window.
4. Stay in "settings" and goto "Show advanced settings"
5. Scroll right to the bottom of the list
6. Click on "Reset browser settings
7. Close Chrome and then open again and the search tab should be gone.

You will have to log back in to your browser and enable  your apps again.
Remember you probably got Bing from one the latest installs of a program or Google App ... so don't load any suspicious apps.

Hi there,

same thing happened to me, opened up chrome one day and for some reason....new start page "powered by bing" (whoopty sh*t).

I must have tried half a dozen different ways of getting rid of it, until finally this worked:

CLICK "CHROME" BY THE APPLE (upper left of screen)
GO TO "PREFERENCES"
CLICK "SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS" (bottom of the page)
CLICK "RESET BROWSER SETTINGS" (at the bottom of the page again)

.....there you have it, next time i opened up Chrome, it was the wonderful Google again.

I have to assume that there are people out there who possess the knowledge and the know-how to bring Chrome and Google back together WITHOUT resetting everything, but when all else fails (and you simply can't stand to see the stupid 'bing' logo any more.....it's a principle thing) this should do the trick, it did for me.

its not actually Bing that's doing this, its probably the Conduit malware that redirects you to Bing

You may need to remove conduit search.
Try the method mentioned in the following link

I finally got rid of Bing... for now

I tried pretty much everything listed here and nothing worked. So I figured I'd post what finally worked for me.

I pressed the windows start menu button and typed   msconfig   in the search box and ran msconfig.exe. I checked the startup tab and thats where I found it, "ConduitFloatingPlugin_blklojfklgnogjaijkbhfjepaksdhfloahglk." I disabled it, pressed OK, and restarted my computer. I then got back onto chrome and was delighted to not see anything about Bing/Conduit.

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat Ginger Kenney 1/7/14 7:32 AM
Peter, you made me think: I too got the Bing virus through contact with another program. In my case it was "Memeo Instant Backup," which I believe came with an external hard drive I have. Memeo popped a dialog box asking whether I'd like to install a more recent version of the program and since I like my backup, I foolishly said yes. It then opened a Chrome window that wanted to SELL me some enhanced version. When I closed that window--DOOM! I had Bing.

Larry, I do not believe it's Google doing this.

Google has no incentive to force you to use a competitor's search page and change your new tab page.
It works, generally, by piggy backing on another install. Once installed it changes your search engine and new tab to search through Bing, and then takes a cut of the advert fees that may be displayed to you.

because there are different ways to get "infected" there are different ways to get it off, and it changes over time
For most people at the moment clicking on "revert" link in the bottom left corner seems to be removing it.

On my computer it turned out to be a program called Search Protect by Conduit. I have no idea how I got it. I went to add or remove programs, found it deleted it at which time it asked me if I wanted to restore my default browser settings. I clicked yes and deleted the program and all returned to normal. Hope this helps in your case

Try wrench > settings > on start up > open a specific page (choose set pages) > delete bing/conduit and add google. Next I went to wrench > settings > apperance > show home button (choose change) > typed in googlechrome.com and deleted bing/conduit. Hope this helps.

i just fixed the problem after hours of frustration.  Go to settings.  Under Search,  set which search engine is used when searching from the omnibox to your search engine of choice.

Hi,
Thanks for the solution.
I went into control panel and programs and features (I have an old laptop) and uninstalled Search Direct by Conduit and Bing was gone when I restarted my computer.

I guess anything with a conduit may be bad news.

Thanks again

Go to your control panel - click uninstall program, and find software with the word "conduit" in it - uninstall that, and you'll be good.

Any new tip as to how to handle?

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat Ari Ross 1/28/14 12:49 AM
Ok, I found out what to do in Chrome:

1) upper right click the menu icon.

2) Find "appearance" and just under where it says "Show Home Button" (I have it checked) click the word "Change."

3) There I cleared the other engine and typed in "http://google.com"

So far, that did the trick!  Good luck!!

Also, it seem Conduit manages to put so much junk on my computer with almost any Windows update.  Does anybody else have this problem?

This happened to me too. Probably while installing other stuff. Go to Windows Control Panel. Bing will not appear but look for a program called (II should have posted before I deleted it) "Search protect" by a company called CONDUIT. THAT is the culprit. I uninstalled it and PRESTO! Google became my search engine again.
That me know if that works.

If you've tried restoring Chrome from the Bing page and it doesn't work, un-install the Search Conduit program directly from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. It'll be under "Search" or "Search Tool". My Chrome's back in business now!

Thank you, I hate Bing too and could not get rid of it.  I even had my office IT person come in and try to remove it to just say I don't know and that will cost you....
I went through everything, deleted all my bookmarks, other programs that looked strange, browser history so all past ease of accessing the sites I wanted are not lost.

IF MS is reading, let me say this again I HATE BING and stop making your program do this!

I had the Bing problem right after downloading a few different Skype recording software (vodburner, pretty may eveur). When I clicked on Google Chrome icon it came up with four tabs. I went through all the options I could find in settings, tried making it default, unclicking Bing and all its friends but nothing worked until I read one reply here that advised clicking restore which is in bottom left corner when you open page. Then click ok and nothing seemed to happen but when I closed that page and opened Google Chrome again it was all back to normal. Thank you. This Bing thing is MOST annoying and seems to be triggered from some software downloading.

Hi Zinc Sauce, This is a very upsetting thing. Bing, Bing, Bing. Go away. If you haven't figured this out yet, here's the solution. I came upon it trying to do something else. Isn't that the way it alway's seems to go.Annnyyyywwwaaayyy! :) Go to the 3 stripe bar in upper right hand corner, click, go down to settings,click, on settings page scroll down to show advanced settings, click, scroll down to reset browser settings,click, then click the reset button. Clear the tab bar on search page and return to desktop. Click on chrome icon. Woollaahh! Back to the good ole days. Take that Bing, yahoo and all the rest who gave us a hard time. Good Luck. Pass it on. There's so much need out here. Peace. :)

For all of you who didn't have the restore button, this is what helped me solve the problem. 1 Open google chrome (you get the @#$%@! bing page) Go to the upper right icon, click it and click settings. 2 When you are at settings you will see a subject called: On startup. Select the 3th option: Open specific page or set of pages. click the blue ''Set pages'' to set a page. 3 Remove all the pages that are in there, hovering over the link will show a '' X'' on the right side. When you have done that add 1 page....the search engine you like, as example: http://google.com. 4: Restart Chome and if i am right there will be no more bing!

I hope this works for the rest of you :)

I am in Windows 7 Pro, using Chrome.
Put your cursor in the address line, doesn't matter what address is in there.
Right click it
It will bring up a tab with "Edit Search Engines" at the bottom.
Click it
You want to make google default and eliminate conduit, bing, etc.
Do that by putting cursor over the program, you will see on the right side a box to click to make it the default
or an X to delete it.  
Make Google default and delete the others.
This is the only thing that finally worked for me!
Good luck and curses to Bing and conduit

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat Haroon_AK 2/26/14 9:33 PM
Good day people,

So after 3 days of trying to figure out why Bing was the default when I opened a new tab, had nothing to do with my settings.

The program is called 'Conduit Search Protector'. It defaults Bing (or Conduit) as your primary search engine no matter what browser you're using.
The icon looks like a light blue shield with a magnifier symbol in it.

You just need to uninstall it.

Problem solved.

In Control Panel, Look for a Search Protect by Conduit - Uninstall this, and you should be fine.

Just remove Bing and Bing Bar from Chrome's optional browser list. Bing pops up once in awhile but when it does you have a CHOICE to NOT select it. That worked for me.

Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat mutter 3/8/14 9:15 PM
This worked for me [Windows 7] - Control Panel > uninstall/ change programs > Search Protect [by] Conduit > click uninstall -  opens a little box that says thank you for trying search protect -  click ok - new dialogue opens   

OH NO YOU MIGHT FIND YOUR COMPUTER ALTERS YOUR DEFAULT SEARCH ENGINE WITHOUT NOTIFYING YOU IF YOU UNINSTALL THIS PROGRAM!! (or similar)  And then gives you a new box.  

Select your preferred search engine from the list (DO NOT choose 'keep my homepage'), click keep my settings - new dialogue box opens  says this program may not have uninstalled properly, click cancel in this box.  Open browser.  NO MORE BING

Option 2 would be at the part where it asks you if you want to keep your settings, or uninstall - click uninstall.  Haven't tried it, but it's the Search Protect conduit that kept taking me to Bing, and no amount of changing default search engine, settings within chrome makes any difference, this program is running separately to chrome and will affect all web browsers; IE, Firefox, Chrome... So uninstalling this should also work.
Re: How do I get rid of Bing on Google Chrome please? Idiot-proof answer would be grat Timothy Maina 3/8/14 9:29 PM
If any of the suggestions below don't work, go to your Control Panel, search for a program called "SearchProtect" by Conduit. Unistall it. It's the one causing all the drama! Hope this helps.

I clicked on 'Restore' at the bottom of the Bing page and it did it!  Wow, too easy and too hard to figure out.  The conventional wisdom says to do it in the Settings part.  What a pain in the you-know-what.  Thanks for your help Will!!!!!

After you Restore on the bing search page, open up add or remove programs, look for anything that says "SafeSearch" by developer "Conduit" and uninstall. That's what is making it come back or stay when you think you get rid of it.

First from control panel---> Program Feature---> uninstall search protector

Then change chrome browser setting 
Click on the Wrench menu
Click on the "Basics" tab
Make sure that Bing is NOT listed in the list of pages to open "On startup"
Make sure that Bing is not the "Home Page"
While you are here, you might as well make sure that "Google" is your "Default search:" selection.

you are done.

I'm having the exact same problem. Took my computer to repair. He told me to download a free anti-virus software (when I had a paid for anti-virus but he thought this program was better). Bing took over my computer with that free download. Keep resetting default browser, etc. and Bing keeps showing up. WTHeck!
BING stands for:
B - Bing
I - Is
N - Not
G - Google!

For the people who STILL have this problem, after the restore button.
Go to your configuration screen, Programs: delete Programs, and search for something called: Safe Search, or something (I deleted it before I got a good look)
It should pop up a screen asking you if you want to de-instal the damm thing from your PC.
If that doesn't work, godspeed.

Skip all the "answers" until you get to Will Raven's: "Look down at the bottom left of the Bing search page. You will see that it is provided by Conduit. There is a restore button down there, if you click it you will restore chrome to it's settings, which will restore your search provider and what home page you have. 
That is what fixed the problem for me, hope it works for you." Unless you are a complete newbie you will have tried all the other "answers" already and failed.

Hi All,

Thank you for coming to the forum and providing your solutions or letting us know what worked for you. If your new tab page is stuck set to Bing, you likely have installed a program called Conduit. To fix the problems, you just need to remove the program. Please try one of the below steps: 

1. Uninstall any programs that are named 'Conduit' or 'SearchProtect' 'Search Protect' or "Search Project' (Goto->Start-> Control panel->Uninstall a program)

2. Look at the bottom left of the Bing search page, it should say provided by Conduit. Find and click the Restore button, which should restore your search provider and what home page you have (thanks @Will Raven!)


If you are still having issues, please post to this thread.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Sarah
