    Besides being this a newsgroup for Windows Live Messenger ... how did you
    install Bing?? At least what I know of it, it's just a internet search
    engine like Google (only Google is a proper search engine and Bing is just a
    weak copy of it :-p ) which does not has to be installed, it's just an
    URL?

    I'll take a stab here, maybe the Windows Live or MSN Toolbar (Bing branded)? Neither however
    could disrupt printer operation really.

    Either way, in the default configuration of IE (never mind other browsers) in Vista, websites
    can't install or write to the hard drive so it is technically impossible for Hotmail to
    install anything without a prompt.

    My suggestion to the OP would be to have someone more equipped to correct whatever the
    problem is. I suspect there's much more wrong here

    I'll happily repair it for stroopwafels, shipping/airfare extra.
