Desinstaller toolbar ask


I tried to post this in Spanish for you, but the FixYa website won't allow it, so here's the English version:

How do I uninstall the Toolbar?


You can easily uninstall the Toolbar using the instructions below:

Windows XP:

  1. Close all open Web browsers
  2. From the "Start" menu in Windows, select "Control Panel"
  3. Select "Add/Remove Programs"
  4. Select the program with the Ask logo and the text "Ask Toolbar" (or our partner's brand for a custom Toolbar)
  5. Click "Change/Remove"

Windows Vista:

  1. Close all open Web browsers
  2. From the "Start" menu in Windows, select "Control Panel". Under the "Programs" icon, select "Uninstall a program"
  3. Select the program with the Ask logo and the text "Ask Toolbar" (or our partner's brand for a custom Toolbar)
  4. Click "Uninstall" and then "Continue" to remove the Toolbar

Windows 7:

  1. From your computer's 'Start' button, select 'Control Panel'
  2. Click the "Uninstall a Program" option found under the "Programs" category
  3. Select the program with the Ask logo and the text "Ask Toolbar" (or our partner's brand for a custom Toolbar)
  4. Click 'Remove'

You can also uninstall the toolbar directly from the toolbar

  1. Click on the chevron (down arrow) on the Option button on the toolbar
  2. Select "Uninstall" from the drop down menu
  3. Click "Yes" when asked "Are you sure you want to uninstall this product"
  4. Close all open web browsers
  5. Click "OK" on the popup window

We ask that once you have uninstalled the Ask Toolbar that you reboot your computer to ensure that the uninstall process is complete.

Need drivers webcam for windows 7


Currently there aren't any drivers for your computer with Windows 7. Dell only offers drivers for your computer with Windows XP or Windows Vista. I would try using the Creative Labs Webcam Driver they have for Vista. Since many things about Vista & 7 are similar, often the drivers for Vista will work with Windows 7. Go to dell.com, enter the model of your computer, choose Vista as your operating system, then go to Input Devices, choose the Creative Webcam and download the driver to your desktop (I suggest against using Dell's Download Manager, just download via your browser like you usually would). Then install the driver. With any luck your will be up and running with your webcam.

Internet explorer 7 & other web pages open in the minimized


The next time you open your browser drag the corners until it's maximized.

Close it by clicking "File"....then...."Close" instead of closing the window with "X".

From then on it should open to its' maximum size.

I'm a Windows user but a very strong advocate of the Firefox browser.

Good luck 1alf2.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.
