Re: how to remove ask.com

To Remove Ask, do the following:

  1. Click on Start, then Control Panel. Go to Add or Remove Programs. Uninstall anything related to Ask.
  2. Then, Update Firefox to Firefox 15. Update Firefox to the latest version
  3. After doing that, install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchreset/
  4. Finally, if that fails, try to Reset Firefox. Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings

   Type in the Filter bar: browser.startup.homepage
   Right-click and select Modify
   Enter: http://www.google.com/search?q=
   Close and restart Firefox 
   You can also reset: keyword.URL to the same.
