Ask toolbar, why do you automatically install it? I have never installed the ask tool bar, but have removed it three times. I do not want it. It serves no useful purpose. Why do I have it if I never enabled it? Why is it hard to remove?

Ask toolbar installing itself, when it is not wanted or needed.

I don't ever want to see the ask extensions again.

How can it be removed once and for all?

To fully remove the Ask Toolbar, follow the removal instructions here:
