Not sure or how but Dam Bing search engine has taken over my default search (Google)in Firefox and Chrome,also Edge.It is not in Add/Remove,or even trying several uninstall software programs is not present. Tried Malwarebytes (No luck),so where is the dam thing hiding...yep can change search to Google via search bar option,but I just want the bloody thing gone. BTW system restore to prior made no difference either..HELP!

No, well, I'm not sure how that could happen either. đŸ™‚

Most likely scenario is that your system has been infected with a "Bing.com redirect" virus. Surprised to hear that Malwarebytes didn't get rid of it.

Try this; go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features. Now look through the list of apps for any with an unusual name - it might be "MyShortcutTab" or it could be something else. Just look for anything you don't recognize that doesn't sound like a genuine program and uninstall.

Hope that helps. Cheers... Jim
