If it is the page you see when you open up your web browser, check in the preferences or options to see what your homepage is set to.

If it's a toolbar, check the add-ons and plug-ins for the web browser.

Refer to the help menu in the web browser to see how to do these steps. Help is typically listed in the menu on the right.

I inadvertently hit the yes button to download ask onto my computer instead of no. I followed that screw up by dragging the Ask Icon to the recycle bin and removing it. The problem is I didn't uninstall...

  1. Click on the startbutton
  2. Click on computer
  3. In the top bar it should say something along the lines of "uninstall or change a program", click that
  4. You will now get a full list of all the programs installed on your computer
  5. Look for the software and select it
  6. Click "uninstall" (this is located just above the list of programs)
  7. Follow the steps from the uninstaller
You can use the above steps to uninstall any unwanted software programs.

Hope this was useful for you!

Remove "ask" toolbar

There are two ways to remove the toolbar from your browser.
1.) On the left-hand side of the toolbar, there is an X which you can click on which will prompt the toolbar to ask you if you're sure you want to do this. Select the affirmative and it should be removed from your browser, however, you'll still have the actual program (it technically IS a progam, though it's an add-n of sorts).
2.) You can uninstall it by going to Add/Remove Programs in Windows XP or by removing it from the Programs and Features list in Vista/Win7. You can get to either of these by clicking Start/Control Panel/ [Add/Remove Programs OR Programs and Features]. Just click on the "ask toolbar" in the list and then click Remove.
If this helps you, please help me by leaving a great rating. I very much appreciate it!
