Most internet users would be familiar with Ask Toolbar. It is infamous for bundling and opting in with third party software. It also tries to set the homepage to Ask.com automatically replacing Google and forces you to make it the default search provider! It clings with the system so strongly that you can’t even get rid of it using Windows default Add/Remove feature in Control Panel.AutoClean has created a little application to remove every last trace of Ask Toolbar from your system. Ask Toolbar Remover, as the name says, completely removes Ask Toolbar and files associated with it.
It does the trick using the following steps:
First, it checks for the Ask uninstaller, after that it executes the uninstaller with a silent switch, and then finally removes the install directory for the toolbar for a thorough deletion. For added assurance, it checks for “Ask” in your IE homepage URL, and if found automatically changes it to Google.com
The Ask Toolbar Remover works for the 4.0.x series, 4.1.x series, and OEM 1000 series ASK Toolbars. It is portable and weighs only 285 KB!
This tool can be used for both Internet Explorer and Firefox (all versions) and is specifically designed to remove Ask Toolbar. If you’re looking for something that removes other toolbars as well, try Toolbar Uninstaller.
