ASK Toolbar Remover

Ask Toolbar Remover v1.3 is a leading search engine on the Web. It was first created in 1996 as Ask Jeeves and renamed to in 2005. Ask is a owned by IAC  and is based in Oakland, California (USA). Ask also distributes the Ask toolbar to facilitate use of their search engine.

The Ask toolbar is often installed along with other software, which can be irritable.  The toolbar is also known to increase web browser loading times, and memory use. Furthermore, the Ask toolbar installer often sets the computer's homepage to Removing the Ask toolbar will have no ill-effects on your web browsing.

We at AutoClean have created a program called the Ask Toolbar Remover that has been designed specifically to remove every last trace of the entries of the Ask Toolbar. Be aware that we do not in any way advise you to remove any Ask programs, but provide this removal tool to facilitate its removal if you decide to.

The Ask toolbar remover was created as part of a joint effort by Matthew McMullan and Fred de Vries to provide more complete removal tools for commonly used software.

The Ask toolbar remover works for the 4.0.x series, 4.1.x series, and OEM 1000 series ASK Toolbars.

It follows the following steps for each toolbar...
  • Checks for the uninstaller
  • Executes the Uninstaller with the silent switch set
  • Removes the Install directory for that toolbar (as the uninstallers are not always complete)
After checking, it checks for "ask" in your IE homepage URL, and if founds sets your IE homepage to
