First, you can go into control panel and remove the ask toolbar if you never use it. It may make your browser a bit faster, and it will certainly give you some more space on the screen.

Second, you can change your browser search behaviour by finding the menu icon (looks like three horizontal bars, maybe green, just under the "X" close window button in the upper right of your browser). Click on it, then scroll down to "Search" and select Google. Close this tab, and you should be back to where you want to be.

I do not want G Chrome. I am trying to make Google my home and browser I am a novice


From your question, it is understood that you want to set Google.com as homepage on your web browser. Also, whenever you try to open your browser, you are getting Ask search.

For your information, Ask search is a kind of virus which infects your browser and changes browser settings without your knowledge. Hence, it is vital to remove it completely from your computer. To do this, the following link can be helpful:

Lost all my facebook friends and trying to get reid of Ask as a search egine and I want to go back to Google search egine?


Hi David,
You can choose the search engine for internet browsing. The Browser you use will determine where you start and how you do that. I will show you two examples, 1. From the Windows Internet Explorer, and another from Google Chrome.

1. Win Int Exp.
From the menu (gear icon on top (RH), choose manage add-ons. The Manage Add-ons options box will pop up. Configure which search engine/ add-on etc. you want tp keep as your defaults.

2. Win Int Exp. You can change your home page by clicking on the menu, select Internet Options and from the Options box (Home page) type http://www.google.com

Try this and please rate me if my answers do help you. Thanks.

I want to go back to google and google + instead of bing which popped up and I did not want it


To make Google your default search engine, in Chrome, click the three bars to the far right of the Chrome browser, click Settings, Set the programs you want to run as your Home Page, removing Bing, then click "Manage Search Engines", and get rid of the engines you don't want to keep by clicking the X when you hover over them, and click "Make default" on the one you prefer. Also remove Bing from "Programs and Features" within the Control Panel. Other browsers have a similar way to change search engine preferences: sometimes by an icon next to the Search box that lets you "Manage" them.

Sometimes when you download a program, or an update for a program, there will be a box/button to add Bing as your search engine, and maybe a toolbar too. In the future, always look at the different prompts that pop up and deselect the buttons for such extras.

How to get rid of the ask toolbar?


To uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer, you can follow the steps below:
1.To uninstall "Ask Toolbar" program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel". If you are using Windows 8, drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select "Search" from the list and search for "Control Panel".
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.)

To reset Internet Explorer:
1.Open Internet Explorer, click on the "gear icon" in the upper right part of your browser, and then click on "Internet Options".
2.In the "Internet Options" dialog box, click on the "Advanced" tab, then click on the "Reset" button.
3.In the "Reset Internet Explorer settings" section, select the "Delete personal settings" check box, then click on the "Reset" button.
4.When Internet Explorer has completed its task, click on the "Close" button in the confirmation dialogue box. You will now need to close your browser, and then you can open Internet Explorer again.

To reset Mozilla Firefox:

1.In the upper-right corner of the Firefox window, click the Firefox menu button ( ), and then click on the "Help" ( ) button.
2.From the "Help" menu, choose "Troubleshooting Information".
(Note: If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting information page.)
3.Click the "Reset Firefox" button in the upper-right corner of the "Troubleshooting Information" page.
4.To continue, click on the "Reset Firefox" button in the new confirmation window that opens.
5.Firefox will close itself and will revert to its default settings. When it's done, a window will list the information that was imported. Click on the "Finish".
(Important: Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named "Old Firefox Data". 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.)

To reset Google Chrome:
Before resetting Google Chrome, you first need to remove Ask toolbar extensions from it, change your default search engine, and also change the homepage. To do this, refer to the following steps:
To remove Ask toolbar extensions:
1.Click the Chrome menu button on the browser toolbar, select "Tools" and then click on "Extensions".
2.In the "Extensions" tab, remove (by clicking on the Recycle Bin) the Ask Toolbar and any other unknown extensions from Google Chrome.
To change default search engine:
1.Click the Chrome menu button, then select "Settings", and click on "Manage search engines" in the "Search" section.
3.In the "Search Engines" dialog that appears, select "Google" and click the "Make Default" button that appears in the row.
4.Search for "Ask.com" in the Search Engines list, and click the "X" that appears at the end of the row.

To change default Homepage:
1.Click the Chrome menu button, and then select "Settings"
2.Go to "On Startup" section and select "Open the New Tab page"
To reset Google Chrome:
1.Click the Chrome menu button, and then select "Settings"
2.Click on "Show advanced settings" at the end of the page and go to "Reset Browser Settings" at the bottom of the page
3.On the dialogue box that opens, click on "Reset"

In new browsers, your set your preferred search engine. If you browser loads something like Search Conduit, your browser has been hacked. This typically happens when you install Google, Adobe, VLC Video Player, Handbrake Media Encoder. All these programs ask you to install extra search components. This especially problematic with VLC and Handbrake which are good tools. But, you cannot fly through the install otherwise you will install something you did not initially intend to. For Search Conduit or something similar search for that on a trusted search engine or your phone and follow the steps to remove.

For typical browsers, you can go into the options and specify who you want to manage your search business:

In Chrome, you'll find the search configuration by going into the browser settings, look under the "Search" section, and click on the "Manage Search Engines" button. Click "Make Default" button for the search engine you desire.

Internet Explorer has a search field that looks almost identical to the one in Firefox. Later versions, do this all from the URL bar. The dropdown for the search engine list in this case isn't next to the search engine icon, but instead it's to the right side of the field. This will show you a list of currently available search engines that you can set as your new default.

Google comes up on my screen y isnt it


Go to google.com to use their search. I could tell you more, but I need to know which browser you are using. I recommend installing Google Chrome and set it as 'default' search engine when installing if asked. You can download Chrome here, it installs itself: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/#brand=CHMB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-sk&utm_medium=ha
