Default Bing Hijacker

Bing hijacker is malware that takes control of your address bar and redirects you to Bing Search. It is not Bing that is doing this, it's malware.

Lots of tips on the Internet about how to remove it with some of them digging deep into the computer. In my case it was infecting only Vivaldi, so I decided to delete every extension I had added. The problem disappeared. I probably should have deleted them one at a time with testing after each one, but I forgot this basic step. If I add any of them back I will test then.
