How to get rid of the ask toolbar?


To uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer, you can follow the steps below:

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.)

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.)

Want to remove ask toolbar


It would be helpful to know your browser, but here goes...
1) Open the control panel and go to uninstall a program (or Add Remove Programs). Find Ask Tool Bar AND Ask Toolbar updater and uninstall them. While in the uninstall section, look for any mention of ASK among the publishers. You may have to uninstall any such you find, particularly if these two uninstalls do not fix the problem.
2) As the browser you are using has installed extensions and changed the home page, you have to get rid of the extension and change the home page. In IE, click the gear icon or select Tools from the menu (XP). Pick Toolbars and extensions. Go to Manage Add-ins. Disable those associated with Ask individually by right clicking on them and chosing disable. In Chrome, you would be going to Tools and Extensions, similarly. You have to change the default search engine back to Google by going into Settings in Chrome. In Firefox, you click on Tools and select Add-ons, get Add-ons, and select SearchReset from the list and install it.
3) Run an adaware clearner to remove any residual registry settings. Pick one from a site you have confidence in.

Spyware removal


If you want to remove Movies toolbar, start fixing your computer with a full system scan. For that, I recommend using STOPzilla or SpyHunter. In addition, eliminate Movies Toolbar from Add/Remove Programs list. For that follow these steps:
Click Start -> Control Panel -> Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) -> Uninstall a Program.
Here, look for Movies and similar entries and select 'Uninstall/Change'.
Click OK to save the changes.

Finally, fix each of your browsers with these steps:

Internet Explorer:
Open Internet Explorer, go 'Tools' -> "Manage Add-ons' -> 'Toolbars and Extensions' and uninstall Movies toolbar and other entries that may be unknown for you.
Click ''Tools' -> 'Manage addons' -> 'Search Providers' and choose the search engine you used before instead of ask.com.

Mozilla Firefox:
Open Mozilla Firefox, go 'Tools' -> 'Add-ons' -> 'Extensions'; find Movies toolbar and other unknown entries and click 'Uninstall'.
Go to 'Tools' -> 'Options' and reset the startup homepage to google.com, yahoo.com or similar search page instead of ask.com.

Google Chrome:
Click the Chrome menu button on the Google Chrome browser, select Tools -> Extensions. Here, look for Movies toolbar extension and get rid of it by clicking on the Recycle Bin.
Click on wench icon, go to settings and choose 'Manage search engines'. Change search engine to Google or other. Then Go to section "On start" and make sure you get a blank page while creating a new tab.

I WANT GOOGLE FOR MY HOME PAGE ONLY


Many times, downloading a toolbar will automatically set your homepage whether you wanted it to or not. First, I would check to see if you have any toolbars installed (I remove all of them).

Click on Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features

If present, right-click on the Ask Toolbar and select Uninstall.

Next, return to Control Panel and open Internet Options. Under the Homepage box, enter http://google.com/ and click on the Apply button. This should solve your problem.

If the homepage continues to revert back to the other pages, you more than likely have a running application causing the browser to automatically select the scripted page. I would then recommend downloading Google Chrome or Firefox to use as a web browser. If you already use Google Chrome and the problem is happening, download again to revert the settings back to default.
