So, I been having this issue for the past month. I doesn't happen quite often but when it does it constantly does it. When I search something on Google it automatically switches to Bing. It's annoying and I can't even fix it. I tried looking for any weird program on Control Panel, but there is nothing that might be causing that. There is also no extension that could cause this in Chrome. I also check to see if Bing was somehow the default search engine and it is not. Also I tried to block Bing through the firewall and it didn't work. There is no virus detected as well. How can I fix this?

Sounds like some sort of browser hijacker to me. You might even be getting redirected to a lookalike Bing and not the legitimate one. That's unless the URL is right.

Antivirus programs will usually not detect things like browser hijackers. You need an Anti-Malware for that. As for which one to choose, I would personally recommend MalwareFox.

If that doesn't detect anything, then I don't know.
