Try installing Revo Uninstaller free & run it in hunter mode. When it pulls up the list of softwares installed in the PC, select Ask Jeeves, set the uninstall mode to advanced, it will run the uninstaller. At the end of the uninstall process, click "next" & Revo will search for left over registry items, files & folders.

How can I get rid of Ask Jeeves

If you click on View on the top menu of your browser and then Toolbars there should be a check mark next to Ask. If you click on Ask, the toolbar should be gone.

Once you do that I believe you can remove it totally by using the Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel.

Thanks for using Fixya.
