Happened to me twice and I had to go back to MS to find out the removal fix.
I hate Google.
Didn’t “Scroogle” used to be an actual website, where you could search for bargain deals on things, or some such?

Thanks for that info. Adobe Flash Player frequently wants to download on me.

Microsoft is a great company and is better than this. This will just get them ridiculed.
Excellent, I just stole that.
