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.

You downloaded some thing and you didn't remove the check mark from ASK Toolbar, or similar which was bundled with whatever you downloaded.

you might like to download and run MalwareBytes Anti-malware. It is free, or at least you only need the free version. I have the paid version because it prevents malicious intrusions like you have found. https://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/

I am unable to make google my home page ask continues to noke it out


most probably you have the ask toolbar on your system. you must take it out to be able to put google as your home page.

1- click on windows glob and in search type appwiz.cpl it will open the uninstall program and from there remove any reference to the ask tool bar.
2- download avast free anti virus and run it
3- download free malware bytes and run it
4- download Glary tools and run it
5- and then you should be freed by ask toolbar able to add google as home page

prevention : Ask toolbar is usually a program installed via another program. so before clicking next or accept when you install a programe make sure you read why they're asking you to click next or accept. Usually you should just click accept for the terms and conditions. and next is usually for approving in witch folder you want to install. other then that read carefully.

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.
