I'm trying to remove the Ask Toolbar from Add/Remove programs and it won't let me. How do I remove it from my computer? p.s. I never asked for it in the 1st place! Please help. Thanks

Click this link http://majorgeeks.com/Revo_Uninstaller_d5706.html download Revo Uninstaller, click on the area next to where it says author and it will take you to Revo's installer page !

Good Luck Rusty !

P.S Revo also gives you the alternative to uninstall all the leftovers from the registry !

Greetings, debbychop.

If Revo doesn't cut it, I've noticed the gurus in the Malware Forum usually recommend Your Uninstaller to remove the Ask toolbar.

No problem, Rusty.

The uninstall routine at Ask.com is pretty straightforward, but I do know that many users have had problems with the toolbar, and it can sometimes prove difficult to remove.
