      I followed these instructions for Mozilla and isn't even listed as an add on, so this wasn't "simple" for me. Ask has obviously hidden itself under a legit program.

      Use internet options & remove it, also uninstall in control panel and most important - add to your restricted sites - and like I did - add to your list of internet thugs!!!

      I spent hours on this thing. All three search engines google, firefox and msm all have their uses and I had to remove ask from all. There is still one catch. How to replace bing back, ask is still on that spot.

      Without this type of help on the internet it will be night. Thank you to sites like this and users like Ask should be on the spam list.

      i got rid of the ask toolbar by going in to the uninstall on my control panel. the only thing i can't seem to do is get rid of it as my dominant browser and get it back to yahoo. my homepage is the same but when i run a search on yahoo it redirects me to ask. i hate ask. worst program on the internet. i'd rather stick with yahoo, google, and whom ever invented ask or came up with the idea should be shot.
