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

  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.

EasyShare Application.


What operating system are you running on the 2nd computer. If it is new and you are using Windows Vista there is a good chance your software is not working.
try downloading another program to help you with your photography. You can still hook up the camera but you may have to use another program to work with the photos.

When i launch browser a tab appears with a firefox icon saying do you want to restore last session or start new session, Click on either one of these and then it says it cant connect because firefox is...


hi,

Its because the browser that you are you using is not your default browser, I believe that your default browser is Firefox, You can try to restart the computer then open up the other browser that you have which is not Firefox, there will be a message there if you want to make that as your default browser, just click on yes, in that way, it will stopped Firefox to appear everytime you open up a tab.

Note: If nothing happens and still the same, you can uninstall firefox by going to the Control Panel then click on Uninstall a Program ( Windows Vista/ Windows 7 ) Add and Remove Programs ( windows XP ) then look for Mozilla Firefox and then uninstall it.


hope this will help... your response is very much appreciated...

Calling option in vista..


Some International versions do not carry the call option. Try downloading from here.

Also, you may have a software problem
Close all programs when uninstalling, downloading and uploading.
After uninstalling from the Control Panel back this up with a visit to your 'C' drive to ensure the 'Messenger' program is fully deleted.
Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Programs files >> Yahoo >> Messenger.
With Vista, the Messenger folder should be fully deleted, all too often software gets left behind creating conflicts.If it is still visible, delete it manually before moving on.
Download ccleaner and run it through until your browser is clean.

Chat connection problem 81003004. I'm pretty sure I logged off from my yahoo mail and I'm still getting this error message. It seems like it won't even try to connect now.


If you have vista, yahoo messenger 9.0. or even adobe flashplayer 10 (is needed to watch content on web browsers like Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox. Thier is a known conflicting report of them between each other. To fix your problem your gonna have to uninstall yahoo messenger 9.0 and flashmedia player 10.0 and try to find an older version of it.
