Hi guys, I hope you can help.

I use Google Chrome, which I open from my taskbar - have always worked that way, and it is my search engine of choice.,

Last week, I suddenly got stuff onto my computer, which appeared in the form of warnings i.e. my Flash Player needed updated etc. I knew this was rubbish, so I went to programmes and uninstalled anything I didn't ask for or want. I then went to Programme Files and did the same thing - then I found myself back to normal - nothing was there that I did not want or instigate.

Until later that night, and in the subsequent days, whenever I click down at the bottom task bar to open my browser, what comes up is a 'Bing' Browser, if I click the chrome tab behind it, my google chrome opens as normal, then I click the cross to close Bing.

My question is this, I have tried everything to get rid of Bing but it's still here - can you tell me how to get rid of this forever. I know you can make whatever search engine you want into your default search engine - I investigate, and despite Bing opening up - Chrome is still listed as my default search engine.
