    I like the Bing bar, it uninstalled my MSN toolbar, only problem is that it will not sign in. Has only signed in once. I have uninstalled & reinstalled it & it did not help. Is it possible that the system is not totally up for the bing bar yet? Also content for wonderwall has not downloaded. Just letting you know. Have a nice day.

    I don’t know if this was done right. I love MSN & Microsoft, keep up the good work I will wait for it to start functioning.
