Bing + Java

Am I the only one who thinks it an odd combo that the latest security updates for the Java Runtime Environment include the option to install the new Bing Toolbar for Internet Explorer? Oh and as an added bonus - right after that option screen is an add for Open Office. Just curious....oh and hi again, it's been a while!

you're not the only one, I thought exactly the same thing... totally bizarre to see sun and ms logos in the same dialog (of course I unchecked bing)

I just bought a new Compaq laptop. Upon starting it for the first time, and opening IE, I noticed that there is a Bing toolbar which automatically displays near the top of the screen. I wish to get rid of it, but do not know how. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Rick
