Hello,
You can uninstall it from your programs. What you need to do is go to start then control panel once the new window comes up go to uninstall programs and look for ask search engine and uninstall.
Once this is done sometimes it will open your browser and ask you why you uninstalled it etc.. Just exit the page and don't worry about it.
If it still exist depending on what web browser you got you can go to the add on page and uninstall it there if the first option does not work..

    How to get rid of the ask toolbar?


    To uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer, you can follow the steps below:
    1.To uninstall "Ask Toolbar" program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel". If you are using Windows 8, drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select "Search" from the list and search for "Control Panel".
    2.When the "Control Panel" window opens click on the "Uninstall a program" option under "Programs" category.
    (Note: If you are using the "Classic View" of the Control Panel, then you need to double-click on the "Programs and Features" icon instead.)
    3.When the "Programs and Features" or the "Uninstall a Program" screen is displayed, scroll through the list of currently installed programs and uninstall "Ask Toolbar, Ask Toolbar Updater, Ask Updater" and any other recently installed or unknown programs.
    Once you have successfully uninstalled the above mentioned applications from your system, you also need to reset your browser to remove Ask toolbar and Ask.com from the respective browser. To do this, refer to the steps listed below:
    (Important: While resetting your browser(s), go through the on-screen instructions very carefully to understand what all changes will be made in your browser once it is reset.)

    To reset Internet Explorer:
    1.Open Internet Explorer, click on the "gear icon" in the upper right part of your browser, and then click on "Internet Options".
    2.In the "Internet Options" dialog box, click on the "Advanced" tab, then click on the "Reset" button.
    3.In the "Reset Internet Explorer settings" section, select the "Delete personal settings" check box, then click on the "Reset" button.
    4.When Internet Explorer has completed its task, click on the "Close" button in the confirmation dialogue box. You will now need to close your browser, and then you can open Internet Explorer again.

    To reset Mozilla Firefox:

    1.In the upper-right corner of the Firefox window, click the Firefox menu button ( ), and then click on the "Help" ( ) button.
    2.From the "Help" menu, choose "Troubleshooting Information".
    (Note: If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting information page.)
    3.Click the "Reset Firefox" button in the upper-right corner of the "Troubleshooting Information" page.
    4.To continue, click on the "Reset Firefox" button in the new confirmation window that opens.
    5.Firefox will close itself and will revert to its default settings. When it's done, a window will list the information that was imported. Click on the "Finish".
    (Important: Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named "Old Firefox Data". If the reset didn't fix your problem you can restore some of the information not saved by copying files to the new profile that was created. If you don't need this folder any longer, you should delete it as it contains sensitive information.)

    To reset Google Chrome:
    Before resetting Google Chrome, you first need to remove Ask toolbar extensions from it, change your default search engine, and also change the homepage. To do this, refer to the following steps:
    To remove Ask toolbar extensions:
    1.Click the Chrome menu button on the browser toolbar, select "Tools" and then click on "Extensions".
    2.In the "Extensions" tab, remove (by clicking on the Recycle Bin) the Ask Toolbar and any other unknown extensions from Google Chrome.
    To change default search engine:
    1.Click the Chrome menu button, then select "Settings", and click on "Manage search engines" in the "Search" section.
    3.In the "Search Engines" dialog that appears, select "Google" and click the "Make Default" button that appears in the row.
    4.Search for "Ask.com" in the Search Engines list, and click the "X" that appears at the end of the row.

    2.Go to "On Startup" section and select "Open the New Tab page"
    To reset Google Chrome:

    2.Click on "Show advanced settings" at the end of the page and go to "Reset Browser Settings" at the bottom of the page
    3.On the dialogue box that opens, click on "Reset"
