Just type Google in your browser. When you see a word like ASK in your browser, you are in trouble. Really, you allowed a program to install ASK. To remove it, you need more than a question on Fixya. But when you are in trouble with ASK, please reply and I try to find everything about how to remove this annoying malware.

I downloaded a program from the net. I lost google and it was replaced with ASK. How do I get back GOOGLE and get rid of ASK


Add/ remove programs in control panel for windows.look for ask.com and uninstall.sometimes you can get into browser settings and revert default search engine back without uninstalling.always uncheck boxes of downloaded programs as you click through menus because most try to install extra programs that no one wants.if you are using netbook or ios or other operating systems and or devices you can usually search google or youtube to find instructions on removal.

I want to get rid of "ASK" and set Google as my hopmepage


Here's how you can get rid of ASK toolbar and set Google as you homepage:
    1.To uninstall Ask Toolbar program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on the "Control Panel" menu option.
    If you are using Windows 8, simply drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select Search from the list and search for "control panel" .Or you can right-click on a bottom left hot corner (formerly known as the Start button) and select Control Panel from there.
    2.When the "Control Panel" window opens click on the "Uninstall a program" option under "Programs" category. This option is shown by the arrow in the image below. If you are using the "Classic View" of the Control Panel, then you would 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 from your computer. That should uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer. You'll also need to remove extensions from your browsers. Refer to this article which gives detailed instructions on how you can remove Ask toolbar from your browser as well as what to do if you can't remove it:
    http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-ask-toolbar-and-search/
    For setting Google as home page, once Ask toolbar has been removed, just open your browser and paste this link in the address bar:
    http://www.google.com/homepage/

    It'll automatically detect the browser you're using and give you instructions on how to set Google as your homepage.

I can,t delete ask&use googl


I'm guessing by reading that, that you want to install Firefox and remove ask.
To remove ask go to Control Panel followed by Uninstall Programs, then find ask or ask toolbar (anything with ask) and hit uninstall.
Otherwise if you're using Chrome you could also head over to Chrome Settings and choose extensions on the left, from there disable and uninstall any extensions that say or relate to ask.

Good Luck!

Google comes up on my screen y isnt it


Go to google.com to use their search. I could tell you more, but I need to know which browser you are using. I recommend installing Google Chrome and set it as 'default' search engine when installing if asked. You can download Chrome here, it installs itself: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/#brand=CHMB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-sk&utm_medium=ha
