Holy MSIL/Microsoft.Bing.D Alerts Batman...

Recommended Posts

There's another thread on this, it's the only one that I can find.  It's from 2022.

I have 110 computers, I think all of them are sending off alerts regarding PUP MSIL/Microsoft.Bing.D.  None of the information that thread appear to be relevant to this onslaught of warnings from ESET.  I've probably received over a 1000 warnings about this since March 27.

Since there's nothing installed on the workstations I've looked at, I'm not sure the best way to move forward.

Notification Message:

"Potentially unwanted application MSIL/Microsoft.Bing.D was detected on computer"

Almost all of the computers are running Windows 10, a few are on 11.

What's the best way to move forward here?

The problem is Microsoft keeps attempting to install the Bing search engine for all installed browsers whenever an Edge update occurs.

As a result of a quirk occurrence, I have been able to stop the constant Edge attempted updating on this regard. I inadvertently allowed the Bing search engine update to install. Later, I ran an Eset malware scan. It discovered the Bing update and I removed it;


C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate\Download\{1FAB8CFE-9860-415C-A6CA-AA7D12021940}\\BGAUpdate.exe - a variant of MSIL/Microsoft.Bing.D potentially unwanted application - action selection postponed until scan completion

Since the update removal, I haven't received another Bing search update via attempted download alert. My guess is a registry key was set somewhere indicating the update has been installed and Microsoft won't attempt a further installation as such.
