Manualy remove all files of ASK , and then type regedit in RUN and search for ASK (find, then find next). Remove all registry entries of it then restart.
I assume you have windows OS.

    Hi, It is actually a little better (in this case) to let the Ask people uninstall it, first go to Control Panel and find it in 'Programs and Features' (or 'Add and Remove Programs') and uninstall there, then go to your browser (if it is google chrome go to Settings>Extensions and click the trash can next to Ask. If you delete files on your own you will not get rid of the registry entries. You could also, to be sure, look into finding any registry entries which Ask adds and remove those, but be sure to follow instructions about how to back up the registry, and you can certainly delete any files which it has put on your computer (search your drive such as the C: drive for anything with ask in the name). Finally, if you really want to be sure, you can find out the exact day you installed things and find any files that were modified on exactly that day, and figure out what they are, whether they were put there by Ask, and remove them if so. However, the Ask company is actually not horrible ,and they do completely uninstall if you just uninstall both from the control panel and the settings menu of your browser.

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.
