Procedure To Remove The Ask Toolbar

A toolbar is usually used to enhance the internet search productivity. Normal web browser toolbars are glued to the Internet search function of your browser. There are many toolbars available, some pretty useful, while some very irritating. In this article, we will see what Ask toolbar is and how to remove it. The Ask Toolbar is actually a search toolbar that installs at the top of your web browser, allowing you to search the Internet directly from the toolbar.

This is useful and convenient, as you need not go to the original site instead of visiting the “” website. Unfortunately, many times users install the Ask Toolbar on their browser unintentionally. It is mostly because it comes packaged with many programs. You can remove the “Ask Toolbar” from your browser in Windows XP, whether you use Internet Explorer or Firefox, by uninstalling the associated Ask Toolbar program in Internet Explorer or the add-on in Firefox. Here are the Ask toolbar removal steps.
