Don't know about removing it but you can just add google or something else there.
I think i read somewhere that MS was scrapping it in the near future.

From where are you trying to remove it? As the default search engine in IE8? You can specify which search engine you wish to use.

I want to remove Bing from my computer, as I stated it is the worst search engine I have ever encountered another MSFT attempt at expanding Windows, with the typical results, more bloat in the OS, and totally useless, as being able to specify which search engine, only from their list, like who wants Mountain Rose searches? the lackof truly powerful search engines(BTW,a search engine that returns more than 20 hits(well maybe 50) is fishing) so even as sood as Google is I find it bothersome to return 15,000 hits, I have my own search engine and will continue to use it

Bing is a search engine and can simply be removed from IE8 by selecting another default search engine. You can also replace IE8 accelerators to what ever you like (or not use them at all). I assume that is what you mean. Just go into your IE8 internet options (under tools) and make your preferences known. Pretty straight forward. Good luck!!!

Huh? There is nothing to uninstall. From IE8, click on Page, then All Accelerators, and then Manage Accelerators. From there you can tweak to your hearts content. If not, you have another problem looming as in either a permissions/rights issue (I assume you have admin rights, please don't be offended) or a corrupted IE8/Win7 install. When you try to manage your accelerators, what happens?

After making changes, I would suggest flushing all of your history, cookies, etc and restarting IE8 to see if that helps. Just a final thought.

HOOAH!!!
