Try uninstalling and reinstalling IE9 Click Here when installing you can choose which search engines to install. Bing is the default, just choose the one you want to use.

Or if you don't want the hassle of the uninstal then go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Re-set. You will lose all your customised settings such as home page etc.

I would suspect that there may be a different issue here.

What Anti Virus and Malware Software do you use? Name, Version and frequency of updating and running, if possible.

IE9 is a browser and not a search engine.If trying to change Bing in I/E try tools.Manage add ons.Search engines.And choose or search for what one you want.

In IE 9,Tools/ Manage add ons/Search Providers Disable Bing

hi, thanks for your replies. i uninstalled ie9, but when i go install it, i get a error message saying it cannot install it and gives me a list of possible problems, but none of them relate to my laptop, apart from turning off firewall. i have windows 7 64bit on my laptop. norton has my antivirus.
