Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

I am unable to uninstall my "Ask" toolbar no matter what I do.

Need to UNinstall an ASK toolbar which I cannot do with my regula Last night, I needed help with my Corel Paint Program and I found a site thru a search which offered "free" help. It turned out to be a scam whch wanted to sell me a program for the operation. I UNinstalled it and was left with the ask toolbar as my OPENING PAGE instead of my usual "Google" home page. I tried several things (inclding an offering by "dgsturt" which failed to solve the problem. I have Pavillion PC,, with Vista and this is a new PC. I rec'd the following from "dgsturt" and none of this worked either. Please help me if you can and I do appreciate it. "Right Mouse click on the toolbar and a menu will appear with all the toolbars, just tick those you want to work.To uninstall the software click on start - control panel - add/remove programmes - select ASK toolbar".

I want to get rid of "ASK" and set Google as my hopmepage


Here's how you can get rid of ASK toolbar and set Google as you homepage:
    1.To uninstall Ask Toolbar program from Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the "Start" button, then click on the "Control Panel" menu option.
    If you are using Windows 8, simply drag your mouse pointer to the right edge of the screen, select Search from the list and search for "control panel" .Or you can right-click on a bottom left hot corner (formerly known as the Start button) and select Control Panel from there.
    2.When the "Control Panel" window opens click on the "Uninstall a program" option under "Programs" category. This option is shown by the arrow in the image below. If you are using the "Classic View" of the Control Panel, then you would 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 from your computer. That should uninstall Ask toolbar from your computer. You'll also need to remove extensions from your browsers. Refer to this article which gives detailed instructions on how you can remove Ask toolbar from your browser as well as what to do if you can't remove it:
    http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-ask-toolbar-and-search/
    For setting Google as home page, once Ask toolbar has been removed, just open your browser and paste this link in the address bar:
    http://www.google.com/homepage/

    It'll automatically detect the browser you're using and give you instructions on how to set Google as your homepage.

Uninstall ask


If it's a toolbar, you might be able to remove it from add/remove programs from your control panel. Start>control panel> programs > add/remove>ask toolbar. If it isn't there, you'll need to go into the browser addons list and manually uncheck or uninstall the toolbar. It might also be called an extension.
