Which browser are you using Joy?
For IE, go to tools-internet options. In the box at the top, where it says ask.com, just type in google.com, then apply at the bottom.
If you can't see tools-options, then do this:
Click Start-Control Panel-Network & Internet-change homepage.
Click the 3 orange bars-right hand top of page. Then click settings.
Where it says: Open a specific set of pages, click set pages.
to the right of ask.com click the x to remove it. Type in google.com then OK.
Then go to Start-control panel-uninstall a program and look for ask.com and click once and uninstall. Hope that helps!
If you are talking about a tool bar on your Internet explorer then click start and search for Add or remove program's Once you've opened this Scroll through the list until you find ask and click uninstall or remove
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.
