Uninstalling the Bing Bar, Surreptitiously Installed with Skype 5.8

Uninstalling the Bing Bar, Installed with Skype 5.8

Background

I got a Windows error message generated by BSvcProcessor.exe. I didn’t install this and so i did some research.

Research Links

This link contained “BSvcProcessor.exe”; it hooked up “BSvcProcessor.exe” with Bing Service, [Tom’s Hardware microsoft-bing-service…] (http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2735458/microsoft-bing-service-bingsvc-exe.html)

Persuit of “Bing Service” searches produced “What is the Microsoft Bing Bar” from support.skype.com. This link said:

The Bing Bar is installed automatically when you install Skype 5.8 for Windows desktop.

Uninstall

So I uninstalled it.

To uninstall the Bing Bar:

Click Start - Control Panel.
Windows XP: Add or Remove Programs.
Windows Vista and 7: Uninstall a program.
Select Bing and click Uninstall.
