    An unwanted ng toolbar has popped up in Edge


    Hello! This morning I've noticed that there's a problem with my Edge. Some unwanted Bing toolbar has popped up. It looks like this:

    I haven't installed anything so I scanned my PC with AdWare cleaner, Malwarebytes and Avira. There were no threats. I also looked up for any Bing apps on my PC and also haven't found anything. Does anyone know how do I remove this? It's really annoying since it blocks my most visited pages :/

    Seems if you change the default search engine to something other than Bing it breaks Edge!

    Default it back to Bing and everything is okay!

    They opening and closing Edge several times. Also try to shut down PC and then cold start. That generally fixes it. At least it did on mine.
