I'm using google chrome with ask as my defauly browser, and i would llike to use google search engine instead of the ask engine. how do i do this?


First, you can go into control panel and remove the ask toolbar if you never use it. It may make your browser a bit faster, and it will certainly give you some more space on the screen.

Second, you can change your browser search behaviour by finding the menu icon (looks like three horizontal bars, maybe green, just under the "X" close window button in the upper right of your browser). Click on it, then scroll down to "Search" and select Google. Close this tab, and you should be back to where you want to be.

Google is my homepage but ask.com keeps coming up when I go online, and I can't stop it from overriding Google. What do I do?


I uninstall ask. Then in Internet Explorer turn off all addons. Then i never use IE again unless it is to turn off all addons again. Then i go to settings in firefox or opera and turn off ask in prefered search engines. Then i go to program files and delete the ask folder. (In Vista/Win7/Win8) Then Windows Explorer/Organized/Folder And Search Options/ checkmark Show hidden files folders or drives also uncheck hide protected operating system files. under C:Program Data delete ask Under Administrator or possibly your account name /Appdata/Roaming look for ask and delete if it is there also /Local Low or /Local Remove ask if you see it This should be enough if it exists in the register windows can handle it or use a registry cleaner.

Delete Tattoodle from facebook I have Windows Vista. dreamteam80!!!


I am usually quite aware of these things but I thought it was a facebook app as well.

The good news is that it is easy to get rid of. You cannot use the uninstall in the Control Panel, it doesn't show up there.

Open your browser, then click on Add-Ons under Tools. You will see the app in the list there and it can be uninstalled from there. You will have to manually delete it the search engine list in Firefox using the Manage Search Engines selection in the drop down.
