Because Live Search does not show up among the software titles in "Add &
Remove Programs", like the Yahoo! or Google toolbars. And I did not have a
choice to install it or not. When I installed IE8, it was already there. I
added no "add-ons", in fact when I try to "Manage Add-Ons", the "Remove"
command is greyed out when I highlight Live Search so it wasn't meant to be
removed. I did search the Internet for a method of removing Live Search and
found a complex solution by editing the Registry, which I am not going to do,
lest I mess up something else. Check it out:
I thought Microsoft would have a cleaner, easear, more elegant method. I
guess I was wrong. Your brief response seems to suggest that there is no way
of removing Live Search. Thanks for the effort though.
